It's not a one-man deal, Ronald Butler said. With Travis Reynolds out, everyone will have to step up.
But it's clear from the Mountain West title game that Butler, a junior receiver, may be filling a more specific role as the downfield threat. Against Fresno State, he had five catches for a career-high 145 yards, culling a 29.0 ypc average after putting up only a 15.7 mark throughout the whole season.
Building that kind of relationship with Darell Garretson has been a process, he said.
