CONGRATS Gabe!  Named freshman of the year in his conference, averaged 19 points and 9 rebounds a game.  Other schools in this conference are: Bethel, Grace, Huntington, Taylor U, Indiana Wesleyan, Marian, St Francis, Mt Vernon, Goshen, Spring Arbor


This kid will NOT BE outworked.

Gabe is one of those players who simply impacts the game through sheer effort and an unwillingness to be outworked.  His awareness and anticipation skills are very good. He is long and loves to block or alter shots and the video below will describe this skill well. His ball handling is improving and given his work ethic and attention to detail, he will continue to improve.  He has good shooting form, he is working on a quicker release.  Gabe sustained a season ending leg injury his sophomore year, which as I describe fueled his inner drive even further.  This is one of those kids who will help a college program both on and off the court.  Grab him while he is still available.  The chances that he will continue to grow and mature as a player are very high.

Simple dunk here demonstrates his length.
