Capitol Corner, Episode Three: PVI/Takeover Assistant Lamar Butler

Most basketball fans would say March is the best time of the year. But for Paul VI and Team Takeover assistant Lamar Butler, this part of the calendar takes on a different meaning. Thirteen years ago, the Oxon Hill native was living every basketball fan’s dream, as he helped carry the 11th-seeded George Mason Patriots to their only Final Four appearance.

In the years following, Butler let basketball take him everywhere from Reno to Instanbul. But now, the former Sports Illustrated cover athlete is back where it all started – guiding those once in his shoes, so that they too may shine under the bright lights of March.
