Today’s Rising Senior spotlight is on Xavier Guyton of Bronson High School.
Guyton will participate in football, basketball, and weightlifting during his senior year. Last year as a junior for the Eagles’ basketball team, he averaged 7.2 points and three rebounds per game. He shot 46% from the floor.
Guyton will play running back and linebacker for the Bronson football team this season. Last year, he rushed for 1,083 yards in just eight games with 18 touchdowns, earning him team offensive Player of the Year. On defense, he recorded 53 tackles, including 13 tackles for a loss, one fumble recovery, three forced fumbles, and six sacks.
The thing he is looking forward to the most about his senior year is “making the most out of it.” His goals for his senior season are to go undefeated and rush for 1,500 yards with 20-plus touchdowns. He currently has college offers or interest from Division-II schools and junior colleges.
Russell Holley, who was Bronson’s defensive coordinator last season, takes over as head coach for Seth Stebbins. Holley was part of an Eagles’ team that went from winless the previous season to a 4-6 record in 2019. A total of nine starters return on offense and eight starters return on defense, giving the Eagles a strong nucleus to work with.
