Things Are Picking Up For Gaynor

Dodge City T Chris Gaynor (6-5, 300) has seen his stock start to climb over the past month and with one offer in his back pocket he's hoping even more schools start to take notice of what he can do on the football field...

"I have an offer from Akron right now and I've been talking with Arizona State a lot too," Gaynor told recently. "Things have been picking up, but right now, those are the main two schools that I am talking to.

"Akron said they have been recruiting me since high school and they like the type of player I am."

Gaynor started at left tackle for the Conqs as a freshman last season and he feels he can do whatever is necessary to be successful.

"I can run-block or pass-block pretty equally," Gaynor noted. "You have to be able to do both to be successful against the teams we play."

Gaynor enjoyed a solid prep career at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, but he was unable to qualify, so he headed to the one school that took notice of him.

"Dodge City is the only school that offered me a scholarship to play football," Gaynor said. "I had to get my academics right and it seemed like a good place for me to go and do that."

Gaynor is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
