Christian Gann's senior season has been very interesting. Going into the season the 6-4 205 pound receiver was tabbed as one of Colorado's top returning wideouts based on the strength of his 24 receptions and 16.5 yards per reception. Due to an eligibility issue, Chaparral's starting QB Andrew Loudenback could not play in the early games of this season thus pressing Gann into service as Chaparral's QB. In that position the athletic Gann was solid throwing for over 800 yards and averaging over four yards a carry on the ground.
Now with Loudenback back under center, Gann can move to his receiver position and ply his trade. Gann had this to say about the move back to wideout, "It is great! I like it a lot more and we are a way better team with out there and Andrew playing quarterback." So far the Loundenback to Gann combo is making up for lost time connecting for 14 receptions and finding the end zone four times. Due to his hiatus from receiver as he played quarterback, college teams are waiting to see more before offering the big receiver. One team that has shown interest of late is the Eastern Washington Eagles. The Eagles have visited the Chaparral campus and are waiting to get film on Gann.
After a loss to Regis, the Wolverines have been on a mini run winning three in a row. This momentum, fostered by the return of Loudenback to QB and Gann to receiver should help propel Chaparral to a strong playoff showing. For Gann, an honor student with an offer from Air Force as well as attention from multiple DIs, a strong playoff showing could illicit more offers.
