Jalen Guyton has dedicated his life to football. He grew up in a town where state champions are the closest thing to royalty and played multiple games in an NFL stadium.
“I have a new type of respect for football,” Guyton said. “I kind of look at life in terms of football. Today is a football game that I got to overcome. This week is a football game. It’s a metaphor for life.”
Currently at North Texas (2-2, 1-0 Conference USA), his third college in three years, Guyton is trying to hang onto his NFL dream. A four-star recruit out of Allen (Texas) High school, Guyton committed to Notre Dame and redshirted his first season. On Dec. 18, 2015, two weeks before the Irish faced Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl, Guyton was suspended for disciplinary reasons and left the program.
After a one-year stint at Trinity Valley (Texas) Community College, Guyton returned to Division I football and enrolled at North Texas. Guyton has started all four games and is second on the team with four touchdowns.
“I don’t see (North Texas) as an endgame,” Guyton said. “Right now, I’m focused on being the best football player, student, teammate I can be.”
