Fordham’s Brenton Butler signs with RSV Stahnsdorf in Germany

Brenton Butler has officially signed to play in Germany with RSV Eintracht Stahnsdorf where he will be the team’s starting point guard.

Brenton graduated from Fordham University where during his senior season (2010-11) he averaged 14.6 points per game and lead his team in total assists & three pointers made. Brenton ranked 13th in the Atlantic 10 in scoring and third in free throw percentage. Brenton was also the recipient of the Terence O’Donnell Award, presented to the Fordham Athlete who best exemplifies the qualities of sportsmanship, loyalty, dedication and self discipline. Over his career, Brenton scored 1,525 points and finished his career ranked third on the school’s all-time three pointers made list.

I am so proud of my boy Brenton Butler. What he brought to the program for 5 years was invaluable. He gave Chris Gaston, Alberto Estwick, and now Branden Frazier the experience and teaching that some coaches on the team could not teach to these younger players. Even with all the scrutiny he received the past few years from fans, he is still one of the best Rams of all time. His 30 point performance on Senior Day speaks of his efforts and dedication to the program. That win ended the Atlantic 10 conference losing streak and set them on a winning way in the future. Now, he will go into a perfect situation in Germany and play for RSV Stahnsdorf. Former Rams, Jermaine Anderson and Mike Haynes have played there and could show him the ropes on how to play professional ball. But one thing Brenton Butler will never lose is his class and leadership. I could only imagine what he would have brought to the Rams during the years when he hurt his foot and played through mono. He could have been not only one of the greats, but the greatest of all time…
