Former Stanford University linebacker Anthony Gabriel is in his first season as a graduate assistant for the University of Washington football program.
Gabriel has spent the last two seasons in the Cardinal football office as a recruiting assistant. In that capacity, he was responsible for planning and coordinating all official and unofficial recruiting visits, maintaining a recruiting database and serving as a liaison to the academic services and compliance departments.
A 2002 graduate of Stanford, Gabriel was a four-year letterwinner and honorable mention all Pac-10 selection at outside linebacker. He was annually involved in the Stanford Youth Olympics program as a coach and served as a mentor in a athletic department program called Stanford Athletes and Kids Unite (SAKU).
Gabriel was a four-year letterwinner for the Cardinal football team from 1998-2001 and took part in two of the best seasons in recent Stanford history as a member of both the 1999 squad that played in the Rose Bowl and the 2001 club that participated in the Seattle Bowl. A two-year starter, Gabriel was an honorable mention All-Pac-10 outside linebacker for the Cardinal in his 2001 senior season when he helped anchor the top-ranked rush defense in the Pac-10.
Upon graduation, he served as a security screener for just more than two years for the Transportation Security Administration at the San Diego International Airport. Gabriel returned to the Bay Area as an advertising sales representative for Google, Inc. and a marketing director for Admissions Academy.
