Former Xenia lineman named captain at UC — Sports Digest: August 31, 2023


XENIA — Former Xenia football player Gavin Gerhardt was named a team captain with the Cincinnati Bearcats for the 2023 season.

Gerhardt, a redshirt junior at UC, was one of four players named as a captain by members of the team.

He was a first-team All-Ohio player in 2019 for Xenia as an offensive lineman and helped the team reached the OHSAA postseason for the first time in school history. He was awarded the Doug Adams Most Valuable Player honor during the same season.

Gerhardt is the only returning starting on offense for Cincinnati from last year as the team begins its first season as a member of the Big 12 Conference.
