GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -- The Guthrie Blue Jays are a team with a recent history of success and churning out college athletes.

After an 8-5 campaign and a loss in the state semifinals to Bixby last year, the Blue Jays look to continue those trends and be in the mix once again to compete for a championship.

Guthrie houses one of the state’s top players in multi-positional star Kentrell Brothers, who plays on both sides of the ball, but will likely be a linebacker in college. He had 95 tackles and 17 sacks as a junior, but also caught 12 touchdown passes.

He will be catching passes from sophomore quarterback Bryan Dutton, who, at 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds is both small and young but certainly effective. Dutton had a sensational freshman campaign, throwing for 2,101 yards and 26 touchdowns.

The Blue Jays return seven offensive and six defensive starters, and sport a solid offensive line anchored by 6-5, 265-pound junior Blake Belcher at the left tackle spot and 6-4, 290-pound Bryce Sullivan on the right side.

Defensive backs Luke Davis and Marcus Ware both had around 100 tackles each last season and will look to shut down opposing receivers again this year.
