Lawrence Guy vs. Portland State

Note: Broadcast cut off first 7 minutes of 1st QTR

1st – 1:12 – Shows good strength and strong hands at POA … gets a nice initial push

1st – 0:27 – Nice motor and strength on double team

2nd – 14:21 – Quick off the ball … Gets good penetration in crashing “A” gap

2nd – 13:49 – Shows very good strength and heavy hands …

2nd – 13:08 – Nice strength in getting LT off balance on X-stung … solid fluid athleticism in slight movement to arm tackle QB … LT comes back to finish block and prevent sack … good job by Guy forcing QB out of pocket – did what he could

2nd – 10:40 – Good instincts and recognizes QB keeper … disengages, shows nice athleticism and a little explosion in making tackle on QB

2nd – 6:49 – If Guy had elite athleticism then this might have been sack on 3rd and long … couldn’t change directions quickly enough to catch up to QB

3rd – 14:54 – Guy got chop blocked by 2 Portland State OL and they injured his ankle. He didn’t return for rest of game.
