Head Coach: Alan Metzel

District: 8-4A Division II

School Colors: Orange, Black

Stadium Address: 850 Buffalo St, Gilmer, TX 75644

Mascot: Buckeyes

2021 record: 14-2, State finalist

Notes: Gilmer will head into 2022 with the high of making it to back-to-back state title games and the low of knowing key players will need to be replaced. The biggest loss with be 2-time All-State quarterback Brandon Tennison, who is heading out to UTSA for college ball. The " Black Flag Defense” will also have to replace several lineman. What is good for coach Metzel is 27 returning lettermen and new assistant coaches, Kerry Lane and Weston Griffis who have head coach experience in the area. Expect to see big numbers from Rohan Fluellen, a two-time all-state selection at wide receiver. Ashton Hayes, all-state running back, will be the second part of the two-headed offensive monster. On defense Omero Orona is back at linebacker and don’t be surprised to see Fluellen on the defensive side of the ball. He led the team with 8 interceptions last year.
