Gaydosz Coming On Strong
Gaydosz had been sharing some of the spotlight at Cabell Midland until his breakout game two weeks ago against cross county rival Huntington High School. He broke multiple long runs including what would prove to be the game winning touchdown. Gaydosz and his teammates celebrated on the field as a team, which is exactly the way Gaydosz likes it. When asked after the game about his performance, the first words out of his mouth were, "couldn't have done it without my line." Gaydosz is also a humble kid, who understands good football.
Gaydosz said that the game against Huntington High School was great, "playing against one of the best in the state and getting the win in front of 10,000 plus in the crowd was great, Huntington is a great ball team."
Gaydosz followed that showing up with a record setting night on Homecoming against Beckley, Woodrow Wilson High. Gaydosz scored 6 touchdowns in a 70 to 34 win. He also had 4 touchdowns in one quarter, and gained 328 yards on the ground, all school records. He ended the game with 16 carries, 328 yards, 6 touchdowns, 3 kick returns for 95 yards. In total he had 423 all purpose yards, against the number 7 team in the state AAA standings.
In saying all of that however, his first comment before the accolades were, "wouldn't have had any success tonight without my line."
The success is starting to show a little on the recruiting front. Currently Gaydosz holds three official offers. The first is from Valporaiso University, the second is from Cornell, and the most recent one is from Wofford. Gaydosz says he is really excited about the Cornell offer, "considering it is an Ivy League school."
Gaydosz is interested in Marshall. He took a visit when Marshall played Western Carolina. He said, "I always love my visits there, and I am in contact with both Bill Legg and JaJuan Sieder. " He is looking forward to his official visits, and hopes that Marshall is one of them, however, he does not have an offer as of yet.
He is happy about the transfer and the ability to play for Coach Salmons. He said, "my senior year is great, and I could not ask for a better opportunity. It has improved my opportunities for scholarships and also to improve my abilities. Playing for Coach Salmons has been nothing less than great. He has pushed me to better myself on and off the field. I would have to say he is the best coach I have ever played for or been around."
Gaydosz is 5'11", and 195 pounds. He runs a 4.49 forty, and was clocked at 3.88 at a camp over the summer at Marshall University in the shuttle. That time was only .01 off the team record.
Gaydosz has four regular season games to go, including this weeks game against his former school, Winfield.
