A Gut check

Newburyport's Guthro primed for big season

(Continued)

Having the eyes of Newburyport‘s little kids on you could be intimidating proposition, but Guthro says he and his teammates are looking forward to the fall.

“Oh, we’re ready to go,” Guthro said. “I think this year; it’s going to be a show. Because we have more heart than ever before. The team this year is bringing so much energy, so much belief to the field. So many of us believe that is going to be a good season and that is so important.”

“He’s a big kid with a big personality,” said Gaudiano. “He’s very personable and makes friends with everyone. He’s the kind of kid you love to have involved with your program.”

As for a year from now, Guthro, who has an interest in studying finance or engineering, is keeping things in perspective.

“You’re called a student athlete for a reason,” said the current honor roll student. “Academics are a huge part of it. Without academics, you really couldn’t get anywhere. I’ve had a lot of support from my family and my friends and my coaches. They help me out and just try to keep me sane through all of this.”
