That’s Mr. Blanton to you

Notre Dame recruit Robert Blanton wasted little time setting the tone for his senior campaign. Here are some short snippets from game one:

If anyone in the stadium didn’t know of Butler’s All-State defensive back and Notre Dame signee Robert Blanton, they did after the first half. With a kickoff return for a touchdown, an interception, a couple tackles on punt coverage and a catch where he smoothly bounced off a defender, Blanton’s name was about every other word out of the speakers.


Senior defensive back Robert Blanton, however, set the tone. After Charest threw an interception deep in Butler territory on the first series, North Meck would score two plays later on a 9-yard Xavier Joplin run. Blanton needed about 10 seconds to erase that deficit, when he took the ensuing kickoff 96 yards for the touchdown.
