EL DORADO, Kan. — A cold and windy practice field in El Dorado, is a far cry from the University of Georgia.
Yet, Butler Quarterback Zach Mettenberger is happy to just be anywhere.
"I thought my life was over," said Mettenberger
A highly recruited star out of Watkinsville, Georgia, Mettenberger was kicked off the Bulldog football team after an off the field incident, which he declined to go into detail about.
After looking at Troy University and the University of Cincinnati, he needed a fresh start and Butler Community College came calling.
"I made a terrible mistake but I've grown from it and learned from it," Mettenberger said. “It was unfortunate that it happened but I've come here to Butler and I've made the most of my opportunity."
