Knoxville, Tenn. – Tennessee’s defensive lineman Matthew Butler has been named to the SEC’s Community Service Team for football, announced the conference on Wednesday.

A player was selected from each one of the conference’s 14 institutions to highlight a student-athlete who gives back to his community through superior service efforts.

Butler was recognized for his continued commitment to both local and international communities.

The junior logged over 65 hours of community service over the last semester, including a two-week sports-based service trip to Rwanda as part of the VOLeaders Academy.

He was one of three football student-athletes selected for the VOLeaders Academy, which is a program that aims to cultivate positive student-athlete leaders through sport to create positive social change. Student-athletes admitted into the VOLeaders Academy learn how to be a positive force for their team, campus, and local and global communities.

Classmate Trey Smith was selected to the Community Service Team last year for the Vols.
