Classroom

A business administration major at Loyola University Maryland, Davis has excelled in his studies at the school, earning academic honors, as well as opportunities in the business community. Butts served an internship this past summer with an investment banking firm, and he has also founded his own company that has flourished in the Baltimore community. Butts is the co-founder of Clean Guys Laundry, LLC, a company that provides delivery laundry and dry cleaning to students at several Baltimore-area colleges. Despite the demands on his time as a student-athlete, Butts has helped the company flourish by organizing the logistics of the deliveries and pick-ups, tracking the company’s financials and responding to customer service inquiries. He spent the summer of 2012 as an intern at Hilliard Lyons Investment Banking in Louisville, Ky., where he provided research and analysis of potential clients and current companies that the firm works with.

Character

Butts is one of the hardest workers and a dedicated leader on the Loyola men’s lacrosse team that won the 2012 NCAA Championship. A team co-captain as a senior, Butts has been a vocal and physical leader for the Greyhounds, honing his skills as a leader in the locker room and on the field.

Community

Davis has been a leader with severa service groups around the Loyola campus, and his biggest work has come with ‘Homeless Hookups’. As a leader with the group through Loyola’s Campus Ministry, he has guided other students from Loyola to Downtown Baltimore where they meet homeless men and women, provide dinner and socialization, as well as friendship. Davis was also part of the Loyola men’s lacrosse contingent that took time from their holiday breaks to visit Newtown, Conn., to put on a lacrosse clinic for many students from Sandy Hook Elementary School that were effected by the tragic shooting in December 2012.

Competition

Butts earned USILA All-America honors as a junior at Loyola, as he and the Greyhounds finished the 2012 season with an 18-1 record and won the program’s first-ever NCAA Championship. He was the team’s top-scoring midfielder, finishing third on the team with 21 goals, tied for third with 14 assists and fourth with 35 total points. Butts scored at least one goal in each of Loyola’s four NCAA Tournament games and finished with a goal and an assist in the NCAA Championship Game. Prior to the 2013 season, Butts has been named to the Inside Lacrosse/Face-Off Magazine Preseason All-America Third Team.
