Butch Witt is a Senior Sports Writer for The LBT.  Before joinging The LBT, Witt was a career counselor at The Citadel Military College in South Carolina.

Witt was a standout high school football player, starting on his high school varsity team near Birmingham, Alabama in his junior and senior years.

Witt has not had a writing position before, and Peter Hartwig inevitably edits everything that Witt writes.  He is a work in progress, although his last evaluation noted that he "needs improvement" in a number of areas, including his willingness to accept criticism.  He is aware of this and assures us that he is doing his best to improve.  (He has yet to enroll in the remedial writing course we recommended to him and that we agreed to pay for.)
