Looking to add more in-depth information on the game of football at First Star Football Report, it’s with great pleasure we announce the addition of Andrew Gantz to the site with his unique talent to evaluate and educate in the area of specialist.
A former five-star kicker out of Centerville, Ohio. Gantz went on to kick at the college level for the University of Cincinnati and Northern Illinois University.
Gantz spent 2013-2017 at the University of Cincinnati playing a key role on the field in 2014 and 2015. The 2016 season was cut short with a hip injury during preseason camp that limited him to two games before re-injuring it. In 2017 he was sidelined again with a groin injury.
Having received a medical redshirt for his junior year, Gantz graduated from Cincinnati with a degree in sports management becoming a grad transfer using his final year of eligibility at Northern Illinois University playing for the Huskies during the 2018 season.
After finishing his college career, Gantz started Game Winner Kicking and joins First Star Football report to handle rankings and evaluations of specialist.
First Star Football Report founder Dave Berk had the following to say about Gantz.
“I’ve had the pleasure to watch Andrew develop from a high school kicker at Centerville High School to one of the top kickers in the college game. He’ll bring great knowledge and insight to an area of the game often overlooked in recruiting coverage. Fans often overlook the importance of specialist in the game of football until the game is on the line and they are either the hero or the goat. We welcome Andrew to First Star Football Report and look forward to him sharing his knowledge of the game.”
