Saturday Morning Quartback: Guthrie vs. McGuinness
Guthrie opened up its season with a 12-7 loss at McGuinness Friday night. It was a night of very tough defense for the Blue Jays who have what will no doubt be one of the best in their class this season, especially with a little fine tuning. Here’s a look back at what went right and what went wrong for Guthrie.
What went right: I wrote about McGuinness quarterback Quinn Shanbour because the Irish won, but Kentrell Brothers was the player that impressed me most Friday night. He’s big, fast and physical. And he also has a knack for being in the right place at the right time on defense. Lost in McGuinness’ win were Brothers’s 23-yard touchdown reception from freshman quarterback Bryan Dutton and his interception of Shannbour that gave Guthrie a shot (one of many) to win the game. And speaking of Dutton, he was pretty impressive himself in the sense that he is a true freshman going up against one of the best teams in 4A on the road and he somewhow didn’t melt down. I don’t know what Rafe Watkins is thinking after Friday night, but something struck me about Dutton’s scrappiness, especially given his age.
What went wrong: Brothers dropped a sure touchdown pass that would have give Guthrie a second half lead. I don’t think McGuinness would have been able to overcome that, given the way their offense was limited by Guthrie’s D. Dutton wasn’t perfect either, he threw an interception and was slow to bail out of broken plays at times. And for all their great play, Guthrie’s defense gave up a huge 64-yard TD to McGuinness’ Sam Crabtree that would have been the difference in the game.
