Bio

A midseason addition to the Chargers’ roster in 2013, Guy contributed almost immediately. He played in the team’s final 12 games, playoffs included, and contributed a handful of big plays on defense and special teams.

Guy gained notoriety for blocking two field goals in less than a month. Signed by Indianapolis for two games early in the season, Guy blocked a field goal Oct. 6 against Seattle that was returned 61 yards for a touchdown. Then on Nov. 3, playing in just his second game with the Chargers, Guy blocked a field goal against Washington. His two field goal blocks on the season tied for most in the NFL in 2013.

While most players face many hurdles in their quest to play professional football, Guy had even bigger mountains to climb. The Las Vegas native suffers from both attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and dyslexia. The combination nearly cost him his football career at Arizona State after a slow start in the classroom. Fortunately for Guy, the University had a disability resource center and at the urging of his father Michael and his brother Chris, who coincidentally relocated from San Diego to Arizona to help his younger brother, Guy was able to get a handle on his academics and maintain his eligibility. With his academic future on solid footing and his athletic career on the rise, Guy became a spokesperson for ASU’s disability resource center and on several occasions he was asked to visit public schools to speak to at-risk students.
