After winning state last season, there's no doubt as to why Gunter has made their appearance yet again on the VYPE DFW 1A-4A Preseason Football Rankings. Ready to hit the ground running this season, Gunter is looking to get started on their road to a back-to-back state title run. First, they have to make it through non-district and district play. VYPE DFW dives into what fans an expect this season.
Posting a completely undefeated record last season, the year started off with a forfeited victory over Allen's Nike Dallas FC to open their season. The rest of their non-district schedule saw victories over Cedar Hill's Trinity Leadership (67-6), Trinity Chrisitan Academy - Addison (41-0), Brock (59-7), and Gladewater. Entering district play on a high note, the team posted victory after victory including three consecutive shut-out victories over Lone Oak (85-0), Leonard (56-0), and Bue Ridge (49-0). Finishing at the top of their district standings with an undefeated 10-0 overall record (5-0 in district play), the team bounced right into playoffs.
In playoffs, the Tigers showed no signs of struggling or faltering. Dedicated to the task at hand, Gunter defeated Jacksboro (48-7), Palmer (40-6), Holliday (31-7), Canadian (21-20), and eventually Poth (42-7) for the UIL Class 3A State Title.
Brayden Hinton, Walker Overman, Colin Peacock, Jace Martin, Cannon Lemberg, Cade Dodson, Kane Bolt, Mitchell Gage, Cole Harpole, Major Thornhill, Brock Boddie, Dylan Tokarz, and more are fired up this season and ready to get a jump on their schedule. Looking to secure another state title, the team can be expected to work hard on and off the field to make their goals a reality.
Opening the schedule on Friday, August 25th at home against Cornerstone Christian, Gunter fans can expect to see this team start strong. They will continue to play hard as they face off against other non-district opponents like Prosper Walnut Grove, TCA, Brock, and more before entering district play at home against Bells.
With a common goal of finishing as the sole state champion in each of their classifications, teams are geared up to give it their all on the gridiron in the 2023-24 Texas High School Football season. As two-a-day practices get underway, it’s that time of year again: VYPE DFW has your Dallas-Fort Worth Area high school football preseason rankings ready!
