Junior defensive tackle Jay Guy and his Aldine Eisenhower teammates are just getting back to taking care of business on the field after their season was almost lost do to Hurricane Ike.
They jumped right in and beat a solid Kingwood squad to get back on the winning track.
"We knew they were going to run a lot in the middle and we knew that we could stop them and then they would go outside tackle," Guy said of the victory. "We had the speed and determination to stop them."
Guy was really relieved to get out there and play. He felt the game was a great avenue for him and his community to let out some of the stress that has been pent up over the past few weeks.
I think that after all of the storm and everything, you know all of that stress let out," Guy said. "I just got my lights a few days ago, and we just let that (stress) out, because we really wanted to play that Thursday two weeks ago. We are just letting all of the stress out - frustration."
"We know we lost our previous game against North Shore, so we knew we wanted to redeem ourselves. We did not want to be that big team that just let down. We did not want to be all of the hype, we wanted to be better than that."
The storm slowed down his recruitment somewhat, but he still already holds two BCS level scholarship offers.
Guy lists a current top five of Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, LSU and Michigan, but earlier this spring it looked like he would be a certain Longhorn if they stepped up with an offer. Is that still the case?
"I am still feeling that way, but now that I start to look at Oklahoma I am starting to feel the vibe from Oklahoma. I kind of like that team."
Guy has not yet been on any visits, but he could be taking in the Red River Rivalry as a guest of the Sooners.
"Not yet," Guy said when asked about unofficial visits. "The times and the storm and everything kind of disrupted it. I was planning on going to one. I may go to the Texas/Oklahoma game and sit on the Oklahoma side."
