Butler QB LeMay wins second national player of the year award

Just a few weeks after winning the MaxPreps national junior of the year award, Butler High quarterback Christian LeMay has earned a similar honor.

Friday, he was named ESPN's national junior player of the year.

He was also named to ESPN's junior class national team.

LeMay threw for more than 3,000 yards and 44 touchdowns last season, leading Butler to a 15-0 record and the school's first state championship. He was named Gatorade N.C. player of the year and the Observer's co-offensive player of the year, an award he shared with West Rowan Parade All American K.P. Parks.

Two other area players made ESPN's first team all junior team: Anson Senior linebacker Stephone Anthony and Rock Hill South Pointe defensive end Jadaveon Clowney. Clowney was the Observer's defensive player of the year.

Other Carolinians on ESPN's national junior first team: OL Brandon Shell, West Ashley (SC); DE Jadaveon Clowney, Rock Hill South Pointe; LB Stephone Anthony, Anson Senior.

-- Rock Hill Northwestern WR Robert Joseph and Northern Guilford DB Maurice Harris made the all-junior second team

Didn't win the Southwestern 4a award but wins the national award. What a joke for a player who was recruited from Porter Ridge.

It is a shame that you would make such disparaging remarks about such a quality young man. I hope that your life becomes more satisfying so that the source of your bitterness towards the success of others begin to dry up. I rejoice in the success of this young man and celebrate his many deserving accomplishments. I also hope that you would join me in this sentiment. Your life would be for the better if you did. Feeling sorry for you.

Anonymous, 12:22, you sound like you attend Lemay's church. His dad has turned him into a pro athlete since age 14. That is what is sad.

As far as I see and hear he is a good kid that is a good athlete!! Hate on Haters!! Stacey and Denae keep lifting your kids up!!!!!!

This is funny. The Lemays moved from Porter Ridge to Butler's district. Now, the area will be moved to Indy next year. Rumor has it that a certain paretn has been trying to strong arm CMS into letting the 9th grade son stay at Butler. Anyone want to bet where the younger brother will be?

Sad, These are kids who are having their childhoods robbed from them by overzealous parents. The regret will come when they look back.

Keep this in mind. Lemay is one hit to the knee from disaster. What will his dad say then? Sorry for making you put 100% of his childhood to sports. Visiting colleges at 15, moving, running a newsletter for the observer. Too much! Let them be kids.
