Big things in store for Reece Gongwer as he has been working hard this off-season to face new challenges of change and making the most of his opportunities.

“My offseason has been busy with my 2 other sports, competition chess, and football training/lifting. Specifically to football training, it has been very productive so far with another month left. On defense last year, even though I made a lot of plays, I felt I should focus on my speed in the off-season. I’ve worked with a track coach to improve form and speed, which I can definitely tell a difference and expect to make more big plays. On offense I have been focusing on my footwork and hands, to allow me to move others more efficiently. This year is supposed to be a transformational year and I’m working hard to make it a reality.” Says Gongwer.
