My name is George Buchner. I'm a 6'0, 190-pound wide receiver at Minnetonka High School in Minnesota. I've spent the majority of my high school career playing QB and was recently converted to a starting varsity wide receiver right before my senior year to help our team generate more offense in the highly competitive Lake Conference at the 6A (largest school) division of Minnesota State high school football. In a run-oriented offense, I led the Lake Conference in touchdown receptions (six) and was second in the conference in total reception yards (343) and average yards per reception (17.1). Playing QB in the past has made my transition to WR very seamless as I have a good feel for where balls will be thrown and where the defenders are most likely to be. I also feel the WR position is a good fit for my athleticism and field smarts as I feel confident that once the ball is in my hands, I can use my strength and speed to make plays in the open field and get points on the board. Throughout the season, I was a major contributor to our offense and a strong senior leader of our team that made it to the state tournament for the first time since 2004. I was also named an Honorable Mention member of the Lake Conference All Conference Team. Two interesting facts about me are that my first TD catch of the year this year was featured on ESPN SportsCenter's "Plays of the Day" (#4 ahead of Derek Jeter's #5 highlight) and, last year, I played QB on a team that made it to the national semi-finals of the NFL HSPD 7-on-7 tournament at Cleveland Browns Stadium. I would like to go to college that challenges me in sports, but also in school. I am undecided in what major I would like to pursue, but I know I would like to spend four years in college working to get that major. Another thing I love besides football is my family. They are very supportive of me in sports, school, and everything I do. And like my family, the game of football has taught me so many great life lessons and I would like to keep learning those lessons throughout my college career.
