"It was a successful season for us," Guarnero said. "We made it all the way to the state championship game. Sure, we could have finished the job but it's OK. I had a really good year personally."
Chris Guarnero, 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds, has been busy since the end of the season.
"I've been working out a lot and doing some form running," he said. "My offseason workouts have started. Plus, I've been having a lot of college coaches coming by my house to talk. It's been keeping me busy."
The talented lineman, who is fully qualified academically, spoke about some of those visits.
"Cal has been out here twice," he said, "Miami's been out twice, CU has been out twice. It's been real busy."
Guarnero took a September visit to Oregon and has a couple trips lined up over the next few weekends.
"This weekend I'm going to Cal and next weekend I'm going to Miami," he said. "I really enjoyed my trip to Oregon. It was a nice place, friendly people, and they had a great year."
Cal and Miami are next up.
"Cal probably has a slight advantage right now," he said. "I just like the people there a lot. Plus, the players are great people too. With Miami, it's obviously a great program. I like how their goal every year is to win a national championship. Art Kehoe is a cool guy and I wanna learn more about the program when I visit there next weekend. Coach Kehoe came here the first time and the tight ends coach came the second time."
Guarnero was asked if the hometown Buffs are a major player in his decision.
"They're in it but I gotta pick the school where I feel most comfortable," he said. "I'll probably have a decision sometime soon after the Miami visit. It's just whenever I feel right about it."
The talented senior is excited to get a close up look at two of his top programs over the next couple weekends.
"I want see how my connection is with the coaches and where I can go in and compete for early playing time," he said. "I want to find a place where I'll be able to succeed both on and off the field."
