2025 LB, WV Native Guner Flores Details Camp Experiences, Desire to be Great



West Virginia high school LB Gunner Flores

Guner Flores feels he gives his all to the game. Unaware of who Gunner Flores is? That’s okay. He kinda likes it that way.

Flores is 6-foot-2, 195-pound class of 2025 prospect who plays linebacker and some defensive end for George Washington High School in Charleston, West Virginia. WV Sports Now spoke with Flores about his experiences at college football camps, including WVU’s, and his football journey that still has two more seasons left of high school football before taking his game to the next level.

As he still waits for college programs to take notice of him, Flores spent the spring and summer touring camps and taking part in seven on seven events. In addition to WVU, Flores also visited places like Appalachian State, Cincinnati, Marshall, North Carolina, Toledo and Virginia Tech. He explained how he’s going to use what he learned to improve his skills.

“I have learned big techniques and knowledge for the next level and overall more of the game. Also, have learned and seen how important it is to be good at your fundamentals. Seen a lot of different things and gained a lot of knowledge such as how to treat your body, body weight, weight room, and such. It really opens your eyes more and gives you a different view and perspective on and off the field.,” he said.

While he recognizes he can still get so much better, Flores was recognized as a member of the All-County team for his play during the 2022 season and is regarded as a top five linebacker throughout West Virginia’s three A classification. Flores described what he brings to the table as a player in grave detail.

“I would describe my self as a player who gives his all to the game. Every down, every play and every position, I give it my all. There’s not a moment in a game I will not give my full heart to. I’m a player, that if you tell I’m doing something wrong, I’ll fix it instantly. I’m a learner, I take in knowledge every practice and every play in game,” said Flores.

“I’m an old style defense of player. I’m hard nosed and strong and just all around hard headed. I have a sense of skill to find the ball or find the gap on defense. I dedicate my life to the game,” said Flores with conviction.

“I try to do my very best to study every movement on the opposing teams offense or every coverage of their defense or the motion on their offense or QB details. I give this game my all. I spend most of my time on the off-season training and finding ways to be better. I look threw my film and find things I think I should change. I train everyday like it’s my last day to train before season. I would describe my self as a dedicated Hard nosed football player from a small town.”

Guner Flores has all the makings of a recruit West Virginia fans should definitely keep an eye on. Could Flores be the next great homegrown Mountaineer?

Playing inside Milan Puskar Stadium for the home team with the flying WV on his helmet would be a dream come true for Flores.

“Growing up, it’s always been a dream and a goal for me to play in that stadium. WVU is all I’ve ever known. Always had big dreams of once playing there under the lights in front of my mother and father, along with my siblings and family.”
