On Thursday, January 23rd, Ayden Gutierrez, three-sport athlete at West Branch, committed to Grove City College to play football starting with the 2020 fall season. Ayden has always had a goal to be a college athlete and pursue the sports that he loves. He stepped into the role as starting quarterback in his junior year and was a team captain this past season. Ayden signed his letter of intent for football, but he is planning on playing baseball at Grove City as well.

Ayden said, “Grove City was a perfect fit for me in all aspects. As soon as I stepped on campus for the first time, I knew right away that I could live there for four years. I really respect the coaching staff and am really impressed with how they’ve turned the program around. I noticed how they genuinely cared about me as a person, not just an athlete, which really stood out to me. Overall, it gives me the best chance to grow academically, athletically, and allows me to further my faith.”
