Coach Butry grew up playing basketball in Killeen/Ft Hood with help from his dad, George. He played high school basketball at Florence where as a Junior was named All District and as a Senior was named an All Central Texas Point Guard and Team MVP in 2002. He played in numerous all-star games, AAU and MAYB tournaments for Killeen/Ft Hood teams from 2000 to the summer of 2002 and was also selected for a National AAU team in 2002. Coach passed on numerous offers and chose to try to walk on at UT Austin in 2002.
Coach Butry has a beautiful wife named Maria and 3 beautiful children Mercedes, Shawn and Mya. God has blessed him with an amazing wife and kids who love basketball just as much as he does. I look forward to inspiring more young athletes to play the game with heart, great team-first attitudes and a hard work ethic that will help them on the court as well as in real life.
