On November 29, 2016, Will Gunnin lost his life in a wreck. Will played football, baseball, basketball, and track for the Addison Bulldogs. He also was on Addison’s first Fishing Team. Will was loved by all who meet him. The Football Spirit Cry this year was “79 Strong”.
Encore Rehabilitation Athletic Trainer Dewayne Fortenberry says, “The team and community knew him as Papa Gunnin, but for this Athletic Trainer, he will always be known as Big Will or the big sweaty teddy bear.”
Will’s parents are Donna and Jeff Gunnin. Will has been selected as Athlete of the Month for Addison High School and Encore Rehabilitation-Cullman.
