New for the 2016-2017 men’s basketball season, we are proud to announce our partnership with Butler University! All basketball season long, we will present the Chapman Champion award to one deserving Butler University student at every home game.
What is the Chapman Champion Award? This recognition is given to a student who shows consistent hard work, outstanding team work, dedication and overall excellence in their time at Butler University. Selected for these values, each Chapman Champion represents the hardworking leaders of tomorrow, through their passion and tenacity.
Each of our Chapman Champions will receive a custom plaque with their name on it. Champions will be recognized individually in an on-court appreciation presentation during a Butler men’s basketball game at Hinkle Fieldhouse.
We feel that hardworking individuals deserve to be recognized and we are proud to partner with Butler University to highlight these outstanding students. Join us at a home Butler men’s basketball game to recognize these students and cheer on our Butler Bulldogs!
