Sports Spotlight: Raycine Guillory


As a freshman on varsity for the 22’ season, he racked up a self-reported 13 touchdowns for 986 all-purpose yards at Lake Ridge High School in Mansfield. Now in his first year at Aledo, running back #9, sophomore Raycine Guillory played a large role in the first game against Parish Episcopal. Guillory scored a 75-yard touchdown on the first play of the night and was nominated as “Player of the Game” by MaxPreps. 

Guillory has been playing football since he was two years old and has become the number-one running back in the state for the graduating class of 2026. 

“I like football because I’m in this environment where I can be myself,” Guillory said. “All the recovery and training I do during the summer, It’s all for the games and it just gets exciting everybody cheering for me.”

Being part of a new team brings a new number, and the number nine has some significance behind it. The number nine has been historically worn by other Aledo running backs, including current Alabama player Jase McClellan. 

Before games, Guillory has a pre-game routine to help get his adrenaline going. 

“I listen to Youngboy a lot before games,” Guillory said. This includes the songs like “I Hate YoungBoy” and “Dead Trollz.”

Even with staying out late for Friday night games and going to early morning practice, Guillory has found a hobby. 

“I like to make YouTube videos,” Guillory said. “I got into YouTube by a guy named Quan.” 

He said he loved seeing people his age get paid for being themselves on YouTube. 

Guillory has two channels; one is called “RayVlogs” and the other is called “Raycine Guillory Jr.” Guillory said “Raycine” is the football player and “Ray” is the person outside of football. “RayVlogs” shows Guillory’s real, everyday life, while “Raycine Guillory Jr.” is about his football career. 

Guillory says he likes making YouTube videos because “it’s a challenge, similar to how football used to be.” Putting in effort to produce a quality video is rewarding to him, similar to how hard work and dedication made him the prodigy running back that he is today. 

After moving to Aledo from Lake Ridge, Guillory has been able to adjust well to his new found team.

“It has been a positive experience moving to Aledo,” Guillory said. “Everybody here is nice and friendly.”
