Strengths:  Gaydosz is a big time athlete who can contribute anywhere on the football field and do it in a variety of ways. He plays RB for his high school team but could certainly play multiple positions at the collegiate level. Gaydosz has high football IQ and knows what his roll is once he steps out on the field. He has outstanding work ethic and strives to be the best player he can be. Gaydosz has the ability to find a hole in the running game and break it wide open with his speed and ability to get in and out of his cuts well. He has excellent vision and hits the hole hard once the ball hits his hands. Gaydosz shows no hesitation when running the ball and can be a homerun threat with the ball in his hands. His athleticism could allow him to become an outstanding safety prospect at the college level as well. He is versatile and could contribute in several ways at different positions. Gaydosz is a leader who is always there for his teammates and sets the tone for his team with his play on the field. He is coachable and accountable on the field and is always willing to listen to direction.
Weaknesses: Gaydosz is an intriguing prospect with a lot of talent but defiantly has some things to improve on before he can play at a high level in college. He plays RB in high school but may have to transition to another position in college. Gaydosz runs on both sides of the ball in high school but plays more offense than defense. He needs to work hard on learning a secondary position just in case he needs to move in college. Competition in high school is lacking. Gaydosz plays on a small level in high school and doesn't go up against top notch talent game in and game out. Jumping into the collegiate ranks could be a hard transition for Gaydosz but he does have the mental capacity to handle it. He needs to continue to get bigger and stronger so his body can withstand the punishment it takes on the college playing fields. Gaydosz would also like to become more of a vocal leader on the field rather than just letting his play dictate the way the game goes.
Overview: Gaydosz comes from a small area in West Virginia where he recently became the first 1,000 yard rusher at Winfield High School in 25 years and he is looking to double up on that during his senior campaign. He has yet to see the college offers come through but is gaining attention and hearing from new schools each week. Gaydosz says that Marshall, Ohio, Akron, Cincinnati, Kentucky, UNLV and Coastal Carolina have shown him the most interest at this time and are recruiting him the hardest. He has taken visits to both Marshall and Ohio and he claims that Marshall could be the school that comes through with an offer first. Gaydosz plans to camp at several college camps this summer and is hoping to gain more interest from schools he has yet to hear from. He was recently invited to try out for the USA National Team this summer that would go up against some of the best international high school football players around. Gaydosz has good potential and the work ethic to eventually reach his goal of playing Division 1 college football. He is an underrated prospect who could be a steal for whoever receives his college commitment.
