Ayden Gutierrez has been chosen as Warrior Watch’s Male Athlete of the Week for the week of 9/15/19. Ayden is recognized as the starting quarterback for the West Branch Warriors.

Over the past couple of weeks, Ayden has contributed consistently to the Warrior offense. He had 200 yards passing multiple games in a row. Through four games, Ayden is 56-115 with 866 yards and seven touchdowns.

“I’ve been able to have some success so far,” said Gutierrez. “Football is a team game, so I’ll never take full credit. I’m very appreciative of my lineman up front who have been able to give me time to throw, as well as my receivers for running good routes and making plays after the catch.”
