Butcher turning heads at Ancilla

PLYMOUTH -- Aaron Butcher had bounced around from job to job when he landed his first college basketball head coaching role at Ancilla College in 2012, and by his own admission he was still a little wet behind the ears.


Looking back, the Wabash native recalls a lot of hour and 15 minute drives back to his hometown after losses, wondering if he had made the right decision in his coaching path. Nobody had ever won at a high level at Ancilla, and in the back of his mind, Butcher wondered if he had what it took to get the program moving in the right direction.


“Looking back, I was 27 when I got the job, which is really young for a college head coach,” Butcher said. “There was probably still some stuff I needed to learn. Early on it was a lot of struggles and trying to build the program and get it going in the direction we wanted it to go.”


That was six years ago, and Butcher has proven up to the task, with the Chargers increasing their wins total every season he’s been there.
