Gabriel is 16 years old and from Hamilton, Georgia. He attends Harris County High School, where he is an Honors student (4.20 GPA). He is also in JROTC and on the Rifle Team as well. He is from a military family and he started shooting with BB and Pellet guns when he was very young. At the age of 7 years old, he attended a Trail Blazer event at Fort Benning, Georgia with the AMU (Army Marksmanship Unit) that allowed kids to shoot 12 gauge guns and he was hooked from there.He started shooting 4H and SCTP events when he was 11 years old, as part of the Harris County Shotgun Team in Harris County, Georgia.

Gabriel is a colorblind shooter but has not allowed that to hinder his ability to accel in the sport.Gabriel practices with his team 2 times a week and practices on his own at least once or twice more a week most of the time.He started receiving his first one on one lessons from Austin Shepherd at the Wagon Wheel Sporting Club (Home of the Harris County Shotgun Team). He has taken a lesson from Paul Giambrone and he is currently being coached by Luke Deshotels (Atlanta Trap and Skeet) for the last year. He enjoys shooting but believes getting to meet all the amazing shooters and their families is the best part of it all. He has made many friends doing what he loves.

In his down time, Gabriel enjoys hunting, fishing and anything you can do outside. He loves the Lord and puts Him first in all things.
