Cardinals Drew Butler visits elementary for FUTP60 kickoff event

In collaboration with the Dairy Council of Arizona, the NFL and Fuel Up to Play 60, Arizona Cardinals punter Drew Butler made a special visit to Lake Pleasant Elementary School Thursday afternoon to talk to the students about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.

The students had great questions for Butler and he gave out lots of signed merchandise. The kids also got to do some exercises and stretches he does in preparation for a game.

Butler has been the Cardinals punter for two seasons.
