Butch Raymond, retired Hall of Fame basketball coach, Athletic Director, and Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Commission, has accepted our invitation to speak at the Big Huddle Reunion and Rally banquet on August 7th. Lloyd "Butch" Raymond served 50 years in collegiate athletics. Over the years, Raymond has been inducted into multi Halls of Fame, including Pipestone/Jasper High School; Augsburg College; Minnesota State University; Mankato; St. Cloud State University and Southwest Minnesota State University. As basketball coach, professor, and coordinator of intercollegiate athletics at Mankato State University, he was instrumental in reinstating football at the school. We are anxious to hear Raymond's message about the value of athletics, especially football, on campus.
