Multiple Teams · Butler Football Names Adam Hines as Honorary Captain


A new tradition in Butler football begins tonight as former Aviators will join current players as the Honorary Captains for all home games.

Tonight’s Honorary Captain is Adam Hines.

Hines is a member of the Butler Hall of Fame, inducted in 2015. While playing for the Aviators, he led the team to the final four in football in 2001 and was named second team all-state as an offensive tackle twice. He was also a two-time state qualifier in wrestling.

He continued his athletic career as an offensive lineman at Indiana University where he was a 2005 team captain and set the school record for most consecutive starts at 45.

Welcome back, Adam Hines.
