Ayden Gutierrez has been selected as Warrior Watch’s Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending 1/5/2020. Ayden plays point guard and is one of the captains of the West Branch boy’s basketball team. He does a great job of keeping the team focused on the goals they have set for themselves as a team, which are to win the ICC, get a home playoff game, and make a run in the state tournament.

Ayden’s favorite position is point guard because he says it’s like being the quarterback of the basketball team. He gets to run the offense and be a floor general.
