Guyer gets offer, makes quick decision

After a standout high school career just 30 miles or so from the Iowa State campus, Johnston (Iowa) kicker Zach Guyer finally convinced ISU he was scholarship worthy at a top shelf kicking camp…in Houston, Texas. The Cyclones extended Guyer a scholarship offer Monday night and he immediately accepted it, cementing his status as the top in-state kicker in the class of 2008 once and for all.

The 6-foot-3, 170-pound Guyer felt like he did about all he could this fall in action for the Johnston Dragons. He made 11-of-14 field goal attempts, including a long of 49 yards, and drilled 37-of-39 PAT attempts. His leg strength was also on display on kickoffs as he put 51-of-61 into the end zone for touchbacks. Iowa State showed strong interest in Guyer throughout the fall, but it was his showing last week in Texas that ultimately drew the offer.

"I went down to the Jamie Kohl camp in Houston and I was in the top group of kickers," Guyer said. "I know Iowa State was down there and saw me. Coach Boulware called tonight and said they had a scholarship offer for me and wanted to know if I would take it. I'd already decided I would, so I said yes. I'm officially a Cyclone."
