DE Garbiel Rios
Nature Coast Technical
GPA - 3.0
Player notes - All-American notes - 2023 All-American DE Gabriel Rios was a destructive force of nature coming off the edge for Nature Coast Tech HS in Florida & wreaked havoc in the oppositions backfield by utilizing his innate ability to quickly gain leverage, while possessing uncanny flexibility when savagely collapsing the pocket. Rios does a stellar job at keeping himself detached from opposing blockers with outstretched arms to be able to rapidly shed blocks while keeping his eyes in the backfield to wrap up ball carriers with authority. Gabriel displays a magnificent repertoire of power & finesse moves, while perfecting the art of the bullrush to keep linemen on their heels to effectively perform quick hitting swim & rip moves to decimate his opponents chances in one on one battles. He is also very stout at defending the run and can hold the edge and/or abrasively cave down to the inside and stuff the A or B gaps with his synaptic fast twitch reflexes. I am thoroughly enthused that 2023 All-American Gabriel Rios has accepted his nomination as a 2023 All-American EDGE rusher as any collegiate team will benefit tremendously from his explosive pass rushing skill-set.
