Butler Community College quarterback Hunter Vaughn threw four touchdown passes to lead the fifth-ranked Grizzlies to a 44-14 victory over the Blinn Buccaneers Saturday at Cub Stadium.
Butler jumped out to a 23-0 lead before Blinn quarterback Garry Kimble scored on a 2-yard touchdown run with 25 seconds remaining in the first half.
The Grizzlies (2-0) scored three more touchdowns before Blinn freshman Reggie Anderson returned a kickoff 100 yards for the game’s final score.
Vaughn completed 16 of 22 passes for 285 yards, throwing touchdown strikes to four different Butler receivers.
Kimble completed 14 of 30 passes on the day for 103 yards, and sophomore running back Klartel Claridy piled up 74 yards on just eight carries. Kameel Jackson caught five passes for 31 yards and Josh Robertson made four grabs for 36 yards.
Defensively, Keil Heidman led the Bucs with 11 tackles and a sack, and Ken Butler made eight tackles.
The game was Blinn's Adam's Angels fundraiser game, with proceeds benefitting Adam's Angels Ministry, a non-profit organization founded by Donna and Tim Culliver of Brenham as a way to reach out to families that have been affected by childhood cancer. The Cullivers lost their 4-year-old son, Adam Christian Culliver, to acute myelogenous leukemia.
Prior to the game, the children who benefit from the efforts of Adam’s Angels got to meet the Bucaneers and participate in the pre-game coin flip. The Buccaneers wore wristbands bearing the Adam’s Angels logo throughout the game.
Proceeds from the game will allow Adam's Angels to assist families with living expenses, fuel costs, medical parking and meal vouchers. Individuals or companies wishing to donate directly to Adam's Angels Ministry can send checks to: P.O. Box 2573, Brenham, TX 77834-2573, or visit www.adamsangelsministry.org.
The Buccaneers (0-2) will be back at Cub Stadium Saturday when they host Southeast Prep Academy at 7 p.m.
