Former Coeur d’Alene standout Gunnar Amos, Idaho’s backup quarterback last season behind Matt Linehan, has been granted his release and is transferring to Idaho State, where he will be immediately eligible and will compete for the starting QB job.
Callen Hightower felt comfortable in Idaho’s first scrimmage of the spring season.
When Coeur d’Alene standout senior quarterback Gunnar Amos took his official football recruiting trip to Idaho last weekend, he was sure Vandals coach Paul Petrino would try to convince him to accept an offer to play wide receiver. Imagine Amos’ surprise when Petrino called him into his office and offered a chance to play quarterback.
If life were a football game, you’d want to throw a flag for unsportsmanlike conduct. Consider what the Amos family of Coeur d’Alene is enduring. It’s akin to piling on. Last month, Coeur d’Alene head football coach Shawn Amos was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The good news is he’s got the most treatable type of cancer.
It was the dream of a little boy at the time. Eight-year-old Gunnar Amos had a T-shirt on with a statement about the 2012 Vikings being state champs. He ran out on the field after a game – as was custom for him, his mom and sister to do – to give dad, CdA head football coach Shawn Amos, a hug – win or lose.
Coeur d'Alene senior quarterback Gunnar Amos is like most sons of coaches. He’s known nothing but football since his earliest memories.
The Coeur d’Alene football team will try to do something Friday that’s never been done in the 5A ranks – become the first school to capture three straight state championships.

Coeur d’Alene was ahead by 21 points when it took possession at its 36-yard line with just 22 seconds remaining in the second quarter. Run out the clock and take a comfortable lead into halftime? Not even a consideration for the Vikings’ quick-strike offense. Two plays later, Reece Mahaffy hauled in a pass from Gunnar Amos, slipped a tackle and finished off a 51-yard scoring play, Coeur d’Alene’s fourth touchdown of the quarter.
