Rashad Guyton, a senior linebacker for the Madison County High School Cowboys, said that last year’s third round playoff game is his favorite memory as a Cowboy.
“It helped us see how much we came together and it helped us want to do more,” Guyton said.
The son of Shaquitha Whitfield and Rashad Guyton, Sr. has his eyes on what the future holds for him. He has committed to Southern Mississippi as a preferred walk-on, meaning that there were no scholarships left at Southern Miss for this year but he will earn one after playing a year.
Guyton, who has been a two-year starter at MCHS, said that he likes the campus at Southern Miss and that they offered two majors he is interested in: Business Administration Entrepreneurship and Sports Management. He hopes to own his own business one day or become a sports agent or recruiting coordinator. Maybe Madison Countians will look at him one day after he becomes as successful as Daymond John (founder of FUBU) and smile.
Guyton’s favorite subject in school is Math and he has an academic scholarship through Take Stock in Children. He took a class at North Florida Community College over the summer and is currently taking two classes at NFCC during the fall semester. Next semester, however, he will focus on getting ready to attend Southern Miss and he will leave for there next summer.
Away from football and academics, Guyton is a typical teenager who enjoys eating hamburgers and fries. His favorite movie is The Wood and his favorite TV show is Martin.
Guyton has a younger brother, Shamaad Whitfield, and a sister, Shauntavia Livingston. He also has a best friend, Bryan Williams, who lives with his family and whom he calls a brother.
The future looks very bright for Rashad Guyton. Let’s cheer him on.
