New freshman football player sensation Gunnor Faulk is a name that most people at Pace have come to know by now. After Gunnor started three games as quarterback for injured senior Kevin Johnson, The Knightly News went behind the scenes to learn more about Gunnor and what he likes to do off the field as well.

Gunnor comes to Pace after three years at Hiram Middle School. As starter for the Hiram Hornets, Gunnor put up good numbers and has already replicated these results in his three starts for the Knights, including four total touchdowns through six games. He has enjoyed activities outside of football so far, including chorus. “It seems awkward, kind of, because people tend to look at me as an athlete, but I enjoy chorus.” said Gunnor. He also signed up for the ping pong club and is a regular member of Wednesday morning Young Life, a Christian youth club that does fun activities outside of school.

Gunnor has fit into the Pace community just as well as anyone who is new to the Academy. He appreciates the values that Pace seeks to instill in students. “I like how everyone, students and teachers, are kind and understanding,” said Gunnor. “Everyone here wants each person to be successful, whether it be in football, ping pong club, chorus, or anything else that people are involved in.”
