VANDALIA — Butler’s Zach Ledbetter may be looking forward to a future in the sunshine state but for now the senior is averaging more than 13 points per game for the Aviators and hoping to put the varsity basketball team back on top.
Ledbetter has been playing basketball since he was five. He says his proudest accomplishment was making varsity.
Coach DJ Wyrick says Ledbetter is a versatile player who brings plenty of quickness to the court, along with his experience.
“Led brings an unbelievable work ethic to our team. He has the most experience at this level and knows the amount of work that he needs to put in to be successful. He is quiet but still has the respect of his teammates. He is always on time and responsible,” Wyrick said.
As one of seven seniors on the team, Ledbetter will be relied upon heavily to turn around a team that went 2-21 last season.
Saying he enjoys “winning games and getting buckets,” Ledbetter seems to be on his way to achieving his goal of winning the GWOC North.
His personal plans for the future don’t involve basketball but this team leader seems to know where he’s going.
“My plans for the future are to move down to Florida and become a realtor.”
