O’Gorman’s Bauer tabbed Gatorade player of the year

Sioux Falls O’Gorman High School senior wide receiver Canyon Bauer has been named the 2018 Gatorade South Dakota player of the year.

Bauer, a senior, caught 62 passes for 922 yards and 16 touchdowns, while rushing for 166 yards and three touchdowns this season to help the Knights reach the Class 11AAA semifinals.

The award extends beyond the football field, with academic achievement and community service factoring in as well. Bauer earned a 3.84 GPA and has verbally committed to play football for South Dakota State University next fall.
