“I’d like to start by thanking my family, friends, coaches, teammates and fans for all the love.”
“Unfortunately, in last night’s game I fractured my clavicle. I thank God that I will not need surgery, but at this point there is no timetable for my return. Thank you to everyone for their support during this time. I know I’ll be back better than ever. Go Knights. Charge On.”
The Cardinals pulled out a dramatic 42-35 upset victory after a Pick Six thrown by Gabriel was returned 66 yards for a touchdown with 13 seconds remaining. He was 22-29 for 184 yards and three touchdowns, and had a 20-yard touchdown reception before
Gabriel’s backup is true freshman Mikey Keene, who did have spring practice as a part of the Knights offense. He was 4-7 this season for 55 yards passing and a touchdown against Bethune-Cookman earlier this season.
