Belcher moving his way up the Jays ladder

Bookmark and Share

The Guthrie football program has been on a plateau in the state of Oklahoma since winning their first ever state title in 2002 and in the process has taken advantage of scholarships to play college football.

Some of the names to leave the Jays of recent time include Kyle Smith (New Mexico), David Washington (OSU), and Kye Staley (OSU). Kentrell Brothers will be the next on the list with the college of his choice, and numerous more that have gone on to small college football.

Brothers is gathering headlines on the local, state, and national scene as one of the top recruits in the state, but next in line will be junior-to-be Blake Belcher.

Belcher, who moved to Guthrie from Tulsa Union, last measured in at  6’4″ 240 pounds and one can assume the left tackle has increased that over the summer with the off-season work-outs (M.T.X.E.).

Last summer Belcher attended the National Underclassmen Combine, the same combines that Brothers has attended and gives a lot credit too, and was named the Overall Most Valuable Player for the offensive linemen and continues to hit the combines.

He is credited for having great foot work, form, and technique in the individual drills. Perhaps his biggest strength from my view is he is coachable and listens to what offensive coordinator Scott Mick has to teach.

Belcher will be among the state’s top recruits next season and college coaches will continue to be spotted at the Jays practice field.
