Like Father Like Son.

Former NFL kicker Kevin Butler was drafted in the fourth round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, won the Super Bowl the following January and is the franchise's all-time leading scorer after 11 seasons with the team.
 
These days Butler is a proud papa as his son Drew Butler has a good shot to be his fathers’ former teams’ punter this season after signing a reserve/futures contract with the Bears on Dec. 31.
 
"You couldn't have dreamt anything more exciting for the family and for him," Kevin Butler told ChicagoBears.com. "He was born in Lake Forest and the Bears were his team growing up, so it's crazy the way things happen in the NFL.

Drew Butler starred at the University of Georgia as did his father and was a two-time All-American who won the Ray Guy Award in 2009 as the nation's top punter.

Father Kevin is the Bears all-time leading scorer with 1,116 points and with current Bears kicker Robbie Gould just 92 points away from breaking the record, dad knows that his son Drew could have a big part in the record breaking kick as the holder if he makes the team.
 
"It's a dream come true for a father," Butler said. "When you think about getting your records beat, there's only one way you'd probably like this scenario and that's somebody like Robbie breaking it who I have great respect for and a friendship with and for Drew to be involved. That's very special and I think it plays into the Bears tradition of great things happening here."
