Manti Te'o receives Butkus Award

Punahou School senior linebacker Manti Te'o became the first high school recipient of the 2008 Butkus Award today during a gathering at the Hemmeter Gym on the school's campus.

The award is named for Pro Football Hall of Fame legend Dick Butkus and has traditionally been given to the nation's top collegiate linebacker.

This year, the competition was expanded to include awards at both the high school and collegiate levels. The Butkus Award honors players who are both outstanding athletes and models of service to their community.
