A speedy 182cm \ 78kg small forward. Strengths are speed, agility and ability to break the lines.
Doesn't always finish well, good defensive pressure inside 50. Injured his knee in the last game so missed the draft combine.
Played for Vic Country, but was inconsistent at TAC Cup with Nth Ballarat Rebels.
5.6 tackles a game at Tac Cup, 16.7 disposals, although a bit below average in his disposal (56.7% DE). Gets more contested footy up forward than uncontested (9.0 and 7.4 possies respectively). Disposal efficiency was better for Vic Country (67.5%).
Butts can be extremely dangerous when he wants to be. Is very quick and agile; will be a dangerous small forward... sometimes he does silly things with the ball in hand- but that's youth. His skills will sharpen up with the one-on-one coaching he will get and the full-time footy environment. Good kid.
