SALT LAKE CITY – The countdown for Hans & Scotty’s 60 in 60 is on. Coming in at #16 is BYU’s Gunner Romney (WR).

Throughout the summer Hans & Scotty are counting down the top 60 college football players in the state of Utah as voted on by the media (and a fan ballot).

“A big-time receiver for us,” BYU head coach Kalani Sitake said of his wide receiver. “He has made big plays. The key is to keep him healthy. Deep-threat down the field, very much like our other receivers. Can turn a small route into a big play. Really looking forward to his senior campaign.”

BYU’s Gunner Romney

Romney is a senior from Chandler, Arizona. He prepped at Chandler High School where they won back-to-back 6A state titles as a junior and a senior. While in high school, Romney participated in the Nike Opening Camp and was named MVP. He is the nephew of former BYU wide receiver Matt Allen. His brother Baylor is a former BYU quarterback.

Romney’s first season with BYU was in 2018 when he appeared in nine games, recording 13 receptions for 162 yards and two touchdowns. He played in 13 games in 2019, finishing with 31 catches for 377 yards and two touchdowns. During the 2020 season, Romney had a breakout season with 39 receptions for 767 yards and two touchdowns. This past season, Romney caught 34 passes for 594 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games played.

In 42 career games with BYU, Romney has 117 receptions for 1,900 yards and nine touchdowns.

Romney and the Cougars open their 2022 schedule on the road against the USF Bulls on September 3.
