What is your name?
My name is Gabriel Chambers
Where do you play college football?
I played 3 years at Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama but I finish my senior year in Montgomery, Alabama at Faulkner University.
How many teams were recruiting you out of high school?
I had about 12 full offer
How did you choose your school?
My cousin Maurice Dupree played and set records there, so I decided to go there and try to break them, and plus me and my high school quarterback Coty Blanchard who I’ve known since I was 3-4 years old was going there so I was like why split up. We won a state championship together so I was wanting to win more with him cause he was my quarterback and brother.
Where are you from?
I’m from Centre, Alabama
Who is your role model, and why?
Fran Blanchard, Thomas Curry, Shawn Sutton, and Maurice Dupree. Coach Blanchard/Curry has always been a great father figure to me since I was little and actually help me throughout life. Coach Shawn Sutton is a role model to me because he is a caring coach and he will help you out and any situation no matter what it is. Maurice Dupree is a great role model cause he always sets records and goals for me to achieve them. He always push me the extra step in our workouts and running. His work ethic is crazy.

I don’t know to be honest but people say my speed and the ability to score or being a deep threat or big playmaker every time I touch the ball
When you are breaking down film, what do you look for?
I break down film and study film by studying in a triangle. The Outside Linebacker, Cornerback, and the Safety. I read their movement and it allows me to play faster

I don’t know because I done went against a lot but I’ll have to say Aj Davis and Pierre Warren. I played college ball with them n they both were fast and smart
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?
Tavon Austin and Desean Jackson. I would compare myself to Tavon Austin because I can return kicks like him, and I compare myself to Desean Jackson cause people say I have speed just like both of them but I play a lot like him.
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
