Quietly, just going about his own business Bethel-Tate receiver, Gauge Dunn is inching his way up the record books in the Buckeye state. Dunn heads into his senior season with several milestones ahead of him.

According to the OHSAA (Ohio High School Athletic Association) state football records, the 2020 Division IV Second Team All-Ohio (WR) & SBAAC National Player of the Year’s 33 touchdown receptions are tied for 24th most all-time in state history (currently tied with Loveland head coach Andy Cruse (Turpin)). Dunn needs 17 more touchdown receptions to become jus the seventh player in Ohio history to have at least 50 career touchdown catches. The only other players from Southwest Ohio ahead of him on this list is Nick Kovacs (Springboro) with 37.

His 179 receptions is the 33rd most all-time in state history. With 21 more receptions, Dunn will become just the 20th player in the state with 200-plus career receptions. The only other players from Southwest Ohio ahead of him on this list are: Eean Hornung (Western Brown) – 255; Wyatt Fischer (Western Brown) – 231; Nick Kovacs (Springboro) – 203; Christian Dawson (Western Brown) – 196; Milt Wilcox (Wayne) – 188.

With 2,328 receiving yards, Dunn is 672 yards away from becoming just the 24th player in Ohio history with 3,000-plus yards receiving. The only other players from Southwest Ohio to hit that mark: Eean Hornung (Western Brown) – 3,667; Wyatt Fischer (Western Brown) – 3,637.
