Irish commits show well in Chesapeake Bowl
Devin Butler and Doug Randolph played sparingly in a 38-13 Chesapeake Bowl loss on Saturday in Hyattsville, Md., but the Notre Dame commitments don’t have any complaints about their participation in the annual all-star game that brings together the top players from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Washington (D.C.), Virginia and West Virginia.
Both made the most of their playing time.
“I played limited time,” said Butler, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound three-star cornerback from Gonzaga High in D.C. “I played the first half and allowed no catches and I played well in press coverage the whole time.”
Butler often found himself matched up with Boston College commitment Charles Callinan and Rutgers commitment Andre Patton.
“I played well,” he said. “I only got beat once, but I broke the pass up. I didn’t make any tackles though, but in coverage I was strong.”
For Butler, the best part of the week was getting back on the field after a month has passed since his last high school game.
On Sunday, Butler will travel to California for the Semper Fidelis game.
Like Butler, Randolph only played in the first half as he planned to remain fresh for the Army All-American Game in San Antonio, Texas.
Butler and Randolph roomed together in Hyattsville.
“The best part was hanging out with everyone and getting to put the pads on again and pop,” he said. “It was great (rooming) with Devin. We have been really good friends for a while.
After the game, Randolph returned home to Richmond, Va., but had an early morning flight to San Antonio.
He’s looking forward to showcasing his skills on the national stage.
