This will be Geoff Gunn's 10th year serving as the Sports Information Director for the New Mexico Military Institute.
'Gunner' grew up in Roswell, N.M. and played varsity baseball and football for the Goddard Rockets.
After a prolonged and enjoyable collegiate career as a student at New Mexico State University, coach Gunn finally completed enough classes to get a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature. Although he graduated with 271 credit hours, he was unable to get even a single minor out of it.
He tried his hand at landscaping as a part-owner of Rio Grande Landscapes in Belen, N.M.; did more landscaping and climbed tall trees while wielding a chainsaw for Baca's Trees in Albuquerque, N.M.; then returned home to Roswell to act as information technology consultant for his brother-in-law's new fitness center, making certain their computer systems were capable of running high-end video games at 60 FPS for extended periods of time (a job which he continues to this day).
Gunn got his start at NMMI by working athletic events with former NMMI SID Chris Fudge: running the scoreboard, keeping stats and creating game programs. Then, when Fudge left to persue a family business opportunity, he beat out at least three other candidates who couldn't explain the intracacies of the sacrifice fly rule, such as why a batter who hits a fly ball to the outfield that moves a runner from second to third is not given a sac, yet one who bunts a ball to do the same, does.
NMMI has been stuck with him ever since and the press box has become a place of escalated and exacerbated debates concerning stats and some of the stranger rules in sports.
