Athlete of the Week

Addison's Zayne Guthrie

The Cullman Times | Daily Mountain Eagle

Zayne Guthrie dismantled Hackleburg in every way possible last Friday night.

The junior quarterback accounted for four total touchdowns and 128 yards of offense to propel Class 1A, No. 8 Addison to a 41-16 road victory against the Panthers at Ray Family Stadium.

Guthrie ran for touchdowns of 1, 8 and 24 yards in the second-round playoff clash. He also completed a 59-yard scoring strike to Logan Wilkins — his only pass attempt — in the third quarter. 

The Bulldogs (10-2) converted 11-of-13 third downs and 2-of-2 fourth downs with Guthrie under center.

In light of his impressive performance, Guthrie is the simple choice for The Times' Athlete of the Week honor.

Tyler Borden (20 carries, 99 yards) and Ben Robinson (16 carries, 61 yards and a touchdown) contributed in the win as well.

Athlete of the Week, which is sponsored by Mitch Smith Chevrolet, is presently open to basketball and football athletes. Nominations are always encouraged and can be submitted to with the athlete's name, school and statistics/accomplishments.
