Quarterback Kenneth Guiton
and his counterparts have restored the prestige once associated with the Eisenhower football program. After leading a youthful Eagles team to the second round of the playoffs Guiton is eager to build on the success of last season. Utilizing spring practice to jell as a team, Guiton is optimistic next years team will advance deep in the playoffs.
"We are ready", says Guiton. "We go hard in practice and it's so competitive out there because we all want to win. We push each other to get better. "
After a few weeks of practice, Eisenhower caps spring football today with an Inter-squad Spring Game.
"I'm going to put on a show. Whoever is there watching is definitely going to get their moneys worth", says the 6'2 175 pound gun slinger. "The offense has been clicking and we are becoming more familiar with each other. Our timing gets better everyday."
A scary thought, considering he is timing up perfect with four star wide receiver Greg Timmons (Texas Commit) and three star wide receiver Jaz Reynolds.
"It is nice to throw to talented athletes. They make me better because it is hard for teams to scheme against us. It makes my reads easier."
Modest speaking, for a kid that threw for 2,592 yards and 17 touchdowns and an additional 300 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns. His humility allows him to be a great leader, but his intangibles make him a great football player. College coaches are hope he can bring that same karma to their program.
"I have four offers right now from Kansas, Houston, Northwestern, and Rice and they all say I can play early. Houston was my last offer but I still like Kansas the most."
Guiton will be taking his time on a decision. Trying to focus more on his teams success then recruiting, Guiton plans to tour campuses once spring football is over.
Boasting six Division I prospects, Eisenhower (TX) has all the tools necessary to make a strong run at a Texas State championship next season. Yet, as most (if not all) football gurus would tell you, a team can have all the tools in the world but will only be as good as the quarterback that leads them. Luckily, Eisenhower has Kenneth Guiton to head the snake.
Guiton is optimistic next years team will advance deep in the playoffs.
