College:

As a freshmen Coach Guy served as a SGA senator for one year.

After being an SGA senator for a year Coach Guy was selected to attend the Towson LeaderShape academy.

Shortly after this he founded the First Men’s Club Flag Football team at Towson University. It was started with 5 participants and grew to 70 participants in two years.
