Glendale CC/Mt. Ridge snapper Brandon Gabbard lands 1AA scholarship

Former Glendale (Az.) Mountain Ridge long snapper Brandon Gabbard took a long and twisted road to the D1 level.

The 6-4 275 pound Gabbard was ranked in Chris Rubio's, of chrissailerkicking.com, top 12 players nationally as a high school senior. He was set to walk on and snap at Arizona State but he did not qualify academically. He then enrolled at Glendale (Az.) Community College and went part time in the Fall and Spring semester, whwich never started his eligibility.

During the Spring semester, when it looked as though no schools would go on him, Gabbard called the GCC coaches and padded up for the Gauchos in the Spring, with the intention of playing this Fall. We was not only Glendale's snapper but starting right tackle headed out of Spring ball.

Those plans again changed when Southeast Missouri State called looking for a snapper. Gabbard was offered, tripped to the 1AA school and committed this weekend. He is all of his eligibility left for Tony Samuel's squad.
