After a great start in the GC Gophers ran into injury problems and they ended their season with 2 losses which dropped them to a 3rd place finish.
For the team this is considered a very successful year, being that it is their first year at the AAA level. They had some great stories during the year and also a few major setbacks.
Riley Francey continued to lead all quarterbacks with 1202 yards passing. He threw for 13 touchdowns and had 4 interceptions in 7 games.
Wide Receiver Christian Philips led the league in receptions with 28 catches for 488 yards, an average of more than 17 yards per catch.
Ending the year with 2 losses did not sit well with the coaches after their great year.
Now the playoffs begin and we know that anything can happen. GC will host their arch-rivals from Sisler on Oct 30 at Nomad Field in Garden City.
