‘Goose’ lands with George Fox Bruins

By ERIC A. HOWALD Of the Keizertimes Isaac Parker, head coach of the McNary High School football program, remembers the very first moment he saw Hayden Gosling throw a football. “I remember seeing him throw the ball in the gym with some buddies, and I texted Coach (Josh) Vanlue right away and said, ‘I think we found us a QB (quarterback),’” said Parker. Gosling, more frequently addressed as “Goose” in sports settings as a Celtic, had taken a year off from football after playing as a freshman, but became the shot-caller his junior year. “In addition to being a smart player who understands the game, he gave the team confidence and was someone the rest of the players could believe in,” Parker said.

Those three are the core of what’s kept me going. It’s not really a diet, it’s more of a lifestyle change. They’ve found ways to work for everybody. You set up a meeting with a trainer.
