Gunner was the team’s Deep Snapper for the past 4 years as well, and also a starter on Defense in 2015.

We’re very excited for Gunner’s opportunity to further his education and his football career at the Citadel, and would like to invite you to join us along with his family and friends as we celebrate this moment together.
