What a great treat to see a former high school friend, you know from back in the 60’. Yes, Butch Davis was passing through Chillicothe and stopped by the C-T for a short visit. It’s been years, but we picked up right where we left off. Such a gentle giant, he has always been. Butch resides in Weston with his family nearby, so they can follow their grandson in his high school football and so much more. Folks will remember Butch, and his stellar high school football career, graduating in 1965, continuing at University of Missouri and with the Chicago Bears who drafted him in 1970, finishing his football career in 1972 with the Green Bay Packers.
