Kentucky Football: Ex-Wildcats Star Winston Guy Jr. Making Noise

Winston Guy Jr. is taking his trademark dreadlocks, and aggressive style, to Seattle -- and making an impression on Pete Carroll.

Consider this tweet a few moments ago from Matt Jones:

That's exactly right. From Seattle Sidelines, here is a report going into a bit more detail about what Pete Carroll thinks of Winston Guy Jr., last year's second-leading tackler from Kentucky:

"I’ve really liked this guy," Carroll said. "He’s a very natural football player. In his days at Kentucky, they moved him around quite a bit, and we were able to see him do things like what we do in this package. It was the Lawyer Milloy spot, a guy we used because of years of savvy and understanding. There are so many things that a guy has to deal with that he almost has to have a real natural sense, because you can’t coach everything because of all the floating and moving around that he’s asked to do. Well Winston gets it; he just gets it. He’s a hitter, he plays the ball well, he’s really fast, he’s 216 pounds, big kid. He’s got a real knack for rushing the passer, he looks like a pass rusher when he’s coming. So he’s really been a pleasant surprise. We had hoped that he would be able to do these things, and he’s on that package." [My emphasis]

Carroll apparently went on to say that Guy will be seeing a lot of playing time Thursday night when the Seahawks take on the Oakland Raiders in pre-season action. I love it when Carroll says guy is "a very natural football player," because that's about as high a praise as you can receive as a rookie in Guy's position.

We knew Winston was a winner when he was here. Now, he's taking it to the next level.
