Video: Gunner Romney, Mitt’s Relative, Torched Navy

Gunner Romney, a wide receiver for BYU and a relative of Senator Mitt Romney, was the Cougars’ leading receiver in Monday night’s 55-3 thrashing of Navy. Romney had four catches for 134 yards and this 45-yard touchdown:

A junior at BYU, Romney was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. He had 31 catches for 377 yards and 2 touchdowns in 2019 and 13 catches for 162 yards and 2 touchdowns as a freshman in 2018.

Here was an interview that Romney did with BYU TV this past June where he described his football journey to the university:

Clarification: This story originally said Gunner is Mitt’s nephew, which had been written in the site KSL Sports. An Outkick reader commented that Gunner is not Mitt’s nephew so we changed the wording of the story.

  1. Great to see that, as a buddy of mine pointed out this morning this could be a very unusual and interesting football season. Teams like BYU who’ve had real football practices this summer look to be light years ahead of a team like Navy who’ve been doing almost nothing to prepare for the season. And damn how about that Cougar O-Line, they should be the envy of nearly every CFB team in America.

  2. Football has never been the highest priority at Navy instead they turn out highly educated disciplined honorable men and women warriors to lead our nations military I’ll take that GO NAVY
