He said he’s seen his team make big strides in recent weeks, but now they need equipment.
The committed coach got so desperate he said that he took to Facebook to ask the community for donations.
“It’s been really beneficial so far,” said Butler because donations are starting to trickle in.
WTVR stepped up to the plate, too, and presented the coach with a gift of $500.
“We know you have gotten some things and that helps, but we wanted to help as well,” WTVR reporter Lane Casadonte said.
Butler said he was caught off guard and surprised by the gift.
“This is going to be really beneficial… I thought you guys were here for the weather!” Butler joked.
