Georgia Tech's all-time leading scorer finished his collegiate career on a strong note, making four field goals in the TaxSlayer Bowl victory over Kentucky. Butker was a third-team All-ACC pick by league media in 2016, connecting on 17-of-18 field goal attempts (long of 52 yards), making all 46 extra point tries and forcing 54 touchbacks on 73 kickoffs. He grew up as a Tech fan in Decatur but was a soccer player until his sophomore year of high school (his school won three state titles in that sport his final three years there). Butker excelled early for the Yellow Jackets, taking over the kicker role as a true freshman in 2013 (10-14 FG; 53-54 XP; 30 TB-73 KO). He scored 98 points as a sophomore (11-18 FG; 65-66 XP) but dropped to 65 the next season (7-11 FG, 44-44 XP; 41 TB-61 KO) as his team didn't score as often.
