There are tons of  former Butler players who have had success playing college football. Perhaps two of the best in recent years play on the same team. Eddie Whitley and Jarrett Boykin are starters for the ACC champs Virginia Tech Hokies. Both players were in Charlotte last weekend for the ACC Championship game at Bank of America Stadium. Whitley is third on the team in tackles and Boykin is the leading receiver in yards and catches. He’s also on the verge of becoming the Hokie’s all time receiver in yards. The Hokies play in the Janurary 3 Orange Bowl in Miami against Stanford.
