Jake Butt Posts Letter He Wrote To Ohio State Staffer In The Sixth Grade

Ohio State fans and Michigan fans rarely see eye to eye.

The animosity between the two was at fever pitch last season, with future first round picks and elite talent on both sides for the first time in recent memory.

On Wednesday, one of the Wolverine’s most dangerous weapons, tight end Jake Butt who was a fifth-round pick of the Denver Broncos, posted a letter that might begin mending the divide between the Big 10 rivals.

A letter Butt wrote when he was in the sixth grade to Ohio State staffer, Greg Gillum.

Butt sighted Gillum as a huge inspiration for his prodigiously successful college football career, and says he still remembers the speech clearly, and continues to carry many of the lessons with me through everyday life”.

Butt is looking to take the next big leap in his football journey in the NFL. After slipping to the fifth round of the draft following a serious knee injury, Butt finds himself in a great situation with a great franchise with Denver. Show explosive ability and a knack for catching the ball at its highest point, Butt could emerge as a huge value pick for the Bronco’s in the near future.
