Gunnar Sampson how was your junior season? It was a really fun season with lots of things to learn and take away from the game, and a great environment to surround myself in at Wheaton Warrenville South. What does football mean to you? To me, football is something I can trust to create new opportunities in my life and also strengthen bonds with people around me. It’s a beautiful game that never gets old, and it’s been an amazing ride so far. I’m excited to see what it has in store for me in the future. What should college coaches know about you? I’m a coachable kid who’s eager to learn and always looking to perfect my craft. I like to think of myself as someone my teammates can rely on and trust, and my background in other sports outside of Football like Lacrosse and Hockey leaves me with a level of raw power and athleticism that helps me excel at what I do.
What do you feel is your strongest trait on the football field? I feel that my strongest trait on the football field is my leadership but also my drive. My leverage and technique is something I pride myself in, and it helps big time when stopping the run and pass rushing on the defensive line. Understanding I can always work on it to be better is something I’ve been stressing to myself as well a lot recently in preparation for my senior season. What do you like about playing in the trenches? My favorite part about playing in the trenches is just the raw physicality you endure every play. It’s an amazing feeling to get down on the line and lead a big defensive stop on a Friday night with your brothers next to you, and ball out every snap. The sheer power from both sides of the line every play is something I find so beautiful and something you can’t find in any other sport. How does WWS Football look for the upcoming season?
I’m really pumped for this upcoming season at WWS. We lost some talent in seniors this year, but it’s an exciting new opportunity for guys to step up and fills spots. I’m excited to see how my teammates and i start to click as the season approaches, and i think we’re really going to draw some eyes with our level of play this year.
