The Kirk Herbstreit Ohio vs. USA Challenge gave an abundance of players the opportunity to shine on the National stage against the highest levels of competition. Athlete Brian Gamble made the most of his opportunity and led Washington High (OH) to an upset over a highly ranked Chandler Hamilton squad (AZ).

Of all the players that made a difference in the outcome of a game on that weekend none may have had a bigger performance that Brian Gamble, a 6-foot-0, 190-pound athlete from Washington High in Massillon, Ohio.

Gamble led his team all over the field helping to secure a 35-20 victory over Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton, who was ranked 13th nationally. In the game Gamble rushed for 159 yards, had a touchdown reception, completed a 66 yard pass, and led his team on defense slowing the potent Hamilton attack.

Gamble, who already holds offers from Akron, Ball State and Eastern Michigan, has been receiving some strong interest since the September 1st contact period, and discusses the game and the recruiting process in a video interview.
