"All these camps have been worth it in helping me get my name out there," Brothers said. "You have to learn how to market yourself, and there is a lot to keep up with."

Brothers has visited Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, Oregon State and USC, among others. He also found time to sneak in visits to Disneyland and Las Vegas.

It's not stopping, either, as he still plans on trying to visit Vanderbilt, Stanford and Duke before the summer is over.

"He puts the time in the classroom and has earned the offers from those great academic schools," Watkins said. "He's grown up and became a leader."

Good leaders are becoming the norm for Watkins and the Bluejays, and it's helped in the development of the younger kids.

Brothers, who once was one of those younger kids, had some pretty good examples to look up to. Guthrie has a nice history of churning out top athletes like Kye Staley and Donte' Foster in recent years, and Brothers said he learned a lot from them.

"I saw the way they handled everything and learned how to act," Brothers said. "I never saw them act too stressed out. I haven't talked to them recently, but Kye told me one thing: to finish every play."

That hasn't been a problem for Brothers so far.
