Gabe’s joining of OULC was eagerly anticipated by the then-captain Tom Carver, who could barely contain his excitement at their first meeting. Over the past 4 years, Gabe has proven time and time again his ability on the lacrosse pitch, earning himself Varsity MVP in his first year, voted for by the Cambridge team. As a midfielder, Gabe dominated faces and was a key member of the Blues team of 2014-5 that saw an almost undefeated season. After moving into attack, Gabe has continued to be the team’s most impressive playmaker. It is not just on the pitch where Gabe excels at lacrosse. In training, he imparts his wisdom and knowledge, which he has attained over many years, to newer players and always strives to further the team. Having captained the Blues team last year, Gabe is determined to emerge victorious in Varsity this year, giving him a streak of 4 out of 4 undefeated Blues Varsities.
