Goals Of The Gunner
Gunners are lightning fast and have an ability to pass blockers on the opposing team to reach the returner. Gunners usually run on the sidelines of the field immediately when the ball is kicked to get to the returner as soon as possible.
PRO TIP: you may hear the term jammer when discussing gunners. jammers are players on the receiving team during a return that are tasked with impeding the movement of the gunner. Sometimes, a team will assign two (2) jammers to a single gunner.
