If the college football season ends like it has started for former Guthrie High School stand-out L’liott Curry it will be another football season to remember.
Curry, a 2015 GHS graduate, was named a 2021 Preseason Division II First Team All-American by Lindy’s Sports in its annual College Football Preview magazine. Curry was one of just two receivers nationally to be named to the Lindy’s Preseason Division II First Team.
A season ago, Curry was a D2Football.com Second Team All-American, an Honorable Mention Don Hansen All-American, a First Team All-Central Region honoree and earned unanimous First Team All-GAC accolades in 2019 for his efforts at Henderson State University.
Last year, Curry caught 84 passes for 1167 yards and 14 touchdowns in 12 games for the Reddies. He was one of 36 nominees nationally for the Harlon Hill Trophy and one of just six receivers to earn a nomination.
During his break-out 2019 campaign, Curry led the Great American Conference in receiving yards and touchdowns and recorded at least one score in nine of Henderson’s 12 games. He was one of just six players in the country with 80 or more receptions, 1000 or more receiving yards, and 10 or more touchdowns. His herculean efforts helped the Reddies to a 9-3 record and a berth in the Live United Bowl.
For the Bluejays, Curry was a two-way star and earned Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State accolades at wide receiver as a senior after catching 50 passes for 802 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014.
He was named the Oklahoman Big All-City Defensive Player of the Year honors his final season and was also named Suburban Conference MVP and District 5A-2 Player of the Year.
As a Bluejay, Curry racked up 280 tackles with 27 sacks, 12 forced fumbles and five interceptions for his career.
