Denton (Guyer), Texas

Briefly: Two aspects of Mwaniki you like immediately are that he played both ways and even stepped in to play some quarterback and Guyer head coach John Walsh doesn’t just let anybody, even in a pinch, quarterback his team. He is a winner coming out of that program and has the Walsh stamp of approval.
