Kenny Guiton was undoubtedly one of the best back up quarterbacks that Ohio State has ever seen. And no, that’s not a slight on him by any means.
While filling in for Braxton Miller last season as he dealt with injury, Guiton was more than the Buckeyes could have asked for, and then some. In all, Guiton finished the season tossing for 749 yards with 14 touchdowns and just two interceptions.
There were many that thought even that little bit of impressive performance would warrant someone using a draft pick on him in last month’s NFL Draft, but that ultimately didn’t happen.
After a short stint with the Buffalo Bills in their mini-camp, Guiton has found himself a professional football home, signing a deal to play for the L.A. Kiss of the Arena Football League.
The 6-foot-3, 208-pound passer has been assigned to the LA KISS — named after the iconic rock group of the same title — of the Arena Football League, according to a press release Tuesday evening.
Now of course, this doesn’t mean that Guiton’s NFL dreams are shattered. The AFL is quickly picking up steam each year around the country and good performances could be noticed by anyone from the NFL, at any time.
So on behalf of everyone here at S&G, we want to wish “Kenny G” the best of luck in his newest football endeavor, and we’ll certainly be watching all the way through, no matter where this journey takes him.
