Minneapolis High’s Gabe Hueser – Spotlight Presented By American Family Insurance, Scott Ausherman

By Hayden Swope

Gabe Hueser, a football athlete from Minneapolis, was chosen as the American Family Insurance Athlete of the Month. Just this season, Hueser has 45 carries and over 200 rushing yards. 

“It’s truly an honor for me to be chosen as the American Family Athlete,” Hueser said. ‘It makes all the years of dedication and hard work pay off.”

As soon as the Lion’s season ended last year, Hueser and the team trained on the field and in the weight room preparing for the 2022 season. 

“Preparing for this season started after our playoff loss last year,” Hueser said. “I got in the weight room in an effort to be stronger and faster. During the summer months, I put hours into practice and weights. Both helped me get to where I am.”

While a big playoff run was being worked towards, Hueser also had another goal he focused on. 

“One main goal I had was becoming a better leader,” Hueser said. “After going 4-5 the past three seasons including our playoff berth, it is a goal to finish the year with a winning record and a playoff win.”

Hueser plans to continue his academic career in college and study agricultural business.

“After high school I plan to continue my education at Fort Hays University,” Hueser said. “I will study agricultural business in hopes to return home and help run my family’s ranch.”
