Patriots linebacker Gary Guyton was recently inducted into the Liberty County Sports Hall of Fame back in Georgia, and Coastal Courier writer Patty Leon caught up with him to discuss the honor and where his career is now leading him as he preps for his third year in the NFL.

"These are the things you work hard for," he said. "This is where your hard work and determination is shown and awarded. I’m definitely excited for me and my family."

Guyton's planning on giving back to the area at his alma mater, the Bradwell Insitute. There, he'll host the first annual Georgia Sports Festival.

"The kids and youth, they are our future," he said. "It’s all about getting out and having a little fun for the kids — also to come out and speak to them and offer them some encouragement. Maybe they can learn something from us and maybe I can learn something from these kids."

As for football, true to form, he spoke in generalities, even with the off-season program a ways off. But he did admit there's plenty of room to grow.

"I’m still learning the game, each year I’m still learning," he said. "Some of the things I had seen before, but I still work hard at what I do. I was more comfortable, but I’m still learning the game of football. Every year I look forward to learning more about the game."
