Homecoming 2010 could not have been scripted any better for Guthrie High School and the Guthrie BlueJay football program Friday.

With an overflow crowd inside Jelsma Stadium, the Jays did what they were expected to and come out and handle the winless Noble Bears (0-5), 56-0. Guthrie improves to 5-1 and 3-0 in district play.  In the three district games, the Jays have won by a combined score 110-14, but will face their toughest challenge this coming

week with the Carl Albert Titans.

Listen to head coach Rafe Watkins radio post game interview. 

The Guthrie defense held Noble to just two first downs in the game (both coming in the third quarter) and a total of 41 yards of offense, including minus -10 yards rushing. The defense has shut-out opponents in 18 of 24 quarters this season and is Class 5A’s top rushing defense.

The Jays offense did not disappoint either as they worked with a short field all night and scored seven times in the first half. The offense was highlighted by quarterback Bryan Dutton finding senior play maker Kentrell Brothers for five-catches for 124 yards, including three catches for touchdowns. Dutton finished a perfect 6-for-6 for 147 yards all in the first half as he sat out the entire second half.

In total, six different Jays scored with Luke Davis, J.T. McFadden, Connor Howard, Hunter Gates, and Cody Reihs.

The Guthrie defense was highlighted by Landry Chappell and Kai Callins. Chappell leads the Guthrie defense in tackles and was named the Farmers and Merchants Bank Player of the Game. A close second was Callins, who finished with two interceptions to increase his season total to three. Both of Callins’ interceptions resulted in 14 points for the Jays.
