Ryan Guthrie may have just had the best under the radar season in the history of Syracuse football. Sure he has got credit along the way, but no where near the amount of credit he deserved. This kid was 2nd team all-ACC at a loaded LB position. As beloved and great as Zaire was he was only honorable mention as a Sr and 3rd team as a Jr. Guthrie stepped in and turned a position that was a weakness into a strength. I know Shy gets a lot of credit around here, and it’s deserved, but the star of this unit this season was Guthrie and he will be hard to replace. The kid was smart. He was always in the right position and was as sure of a tackler as we had. The kid unselfishly played out of position last year at DE to provide depth. I am glad he got a chance to show case his skills this year and at least give himself a shot to try out for an NFL team. I’m interested in how he tests out because if he can show he is fast enough he may have a chance. Anyways I thought I’d give him his own thread and a rightfully deserved shout out for a season for the ages. 2nd team all-ACC will be tough to replace.
