Multiple Teams · LB Merlina chooses to play at Butler


Noblesville, Ind. (Feb. 1, 2013) — Guerin Catholic senior football player Nick Merlina, the all-time leading tackler in Golden Eagle football history, will take his talents this fall to Butler University, where he will play for coach Jeff Voris.

Merlina chose Bulter over Valparaiso, Hillsdale and the University of Indianapolis, among others. Bulter is an NCAA Division I-FCS (formerly division I-AA) football school. The Bulldogs play in the Pioneer League, which receives an automatic bid to the Division I-FCS playoffs. 

Guerin Catholic congratulates Nick and wishes him all the best as he heads to play collegiate football.
