HOW HE FARED: Menefee ran for 204 yards on 21 carries as Butler's dominating ground attack helped end the team's 41-game losing streak with a win against Westside. He also ran for three TDs as the Bulldogs won their season opener for the first time since 2003.
MENEFEE ON MENEFEE: "They made my job a lot easier. They blocked so well," Menefee said of his offensive line.
WHAT THEY'RE SAYING: "They kept giving us inside runs," Butler coach Ashley Harden said. "We ran our halfbacks just four times. It was Jeff left, Jeff right and Jeff up the middle."
