Storm Warning: Mattox Allen

’26 weapon among the more versatile players on the western end of KY

Sylas Gunn completed passes, ran the ball from scrimmage, scored points, registered 44-tackles, picked four (4) passes (led team), and accumulated 86-IRNYs (led team). On top of all of that, he played varsity basketball. Athletic versatility is among his most pronounced attributes. What will the 6’1,” 170-pounder do for an encore in ’24? We believe it will astound us all.

Sylas Gunn was a pleasant addition to the Storm’s roster in ’23. When he transferred over after having played admirably at Webster County, not many fans realized the versatile skill set this young man possessed.

Coach Manning wasn’t among the unknowledgeable. He knew exactly what he was getting and he hasn’t been the least bit disappointed.

Gunn is 6’1,” 170-pound athlete who is still developing. His profile on NCSA (Next College Student Athlete) indicates he clips a 40-yard dash in the low five’s and clocks a 4.62 in he pro agility shuttle.

Gunn is 5.28-seconds in the 3-cone and broad jumps 97-inches. Those are solid numbers for a guy who identifies himself as an “Athlete” on recruiting services and secondarily as a safety.

Gunn’s assessment of his ability to play safety may be a bit modest. Gunn completed some passes in ’23, carried the ball from scrimmage a few times, averaging close to 7.5-yards per carry, and caught a pair of passes on offense.

His defensive numbers were a bit more stout. Gunn registered 44-tackles, led the team with 4-INTs, led the team in passes broken up, and led the team in 86-IRNYs (Interception Return Net Yards).

On top of all of that, Gunn played varsity basketball. Needless to say, this is a fine athlete and one who stands to contribute to the Storm’s ’24 football season in a variety of ways and in multiple phases.

Players like Sylas Gunn are athletes on whom programs are built. We’re going to need his help to continue building this one.
