What They Were Saying About Kenny Guiton
By Tony Gerdeman

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Last week, the Buckeye defense talked about what went through their minds when Ryan Shazier went down. This week, the Buckeye offense had a very similar situation occur to them, but there was no panic.

Kenny Guiton, the senior captain, stepped in almost seamlessly when Braxton Miller left the game with a knee injury. It was something that Guiton prepares every day for, and it was also something that his entire team was completely comfortable with.

"The old right-hander steps in again and does a nice job. He's too slow and not a strong enough arm, but all does is lead, manage and distribute, and he has an incredible knowledge of the game."

Philly Brown

"(He was) excellent. Everything I thought he would do. Kenny Guiton is a baller. Everybody knows that. Kenny, if he wanted to, he could go anywhere in the country and play right now. But he chose to stay here with us and he's doing what he does."

"It affects us a lot because we love Braxton, but you know we don't worry because we have Kenny Guiton coming in. He's one of our leaders and he takes every rep that Braxton takes, so when he gets in, there's no hesitation because he already knows what to do. We just try to keep him up and keep him motivated and let him know that we're by his side and he's not by himself."

"He's just very positive. He's a really great leader. He brings us energy. He doesn't miss a beat. I was very proud of him today. He did a great job. It means a lot. You can always count on Kenny. Everybody loves him in the locker room. He's a great dude. When he comes in, we're still playing, nothing crosses our minds when he's in the game."

"I am joking, he does have a strong enough arm. He is fast enough. But he's got to come in with more confidence, because when he does it's fun to watch. He does a nice job."

"We love Kenny so much. We know that you can turn around any moment in practice when we're running against the scouts and he's back there going through his motions, looking at the defense, making his own checks. Coach Meyer talks about mental reps, and he's getting every mental rep that he can possibly get. So when Kenny comes in, it's kind of like, 'Alright, let's do this. I hope you get better Braxton, we got this.'"

"I'll never get tired of talking about Kenny. He's a great guy. He always does a great job for us. When he steps in there for Braxton there's no worries because we know what he's about and how he works. It was great getting him in there and we had a lot of fun today."

"What's great about him is that he does it in practice. He's a leader. He was voted a captain for a reason. He always prepares and he's ready when called upon. He's the perfect second-team quarterback."

"He's as good of a backup quarterback as there is in the country. I don't know how they decide which one starts to be honest with you. I think both of them are very good players. When one goes down, I don't think they lose anything."
