The Midland Roundtable Athlete of the Year banquet will happen May 16 at the Billings Hotel and Convention. The reigning Gatorade Player of the Year in football is Gabe Sulser. He has been the most electrifying player in the state each of the past two seasons. He has scored a total of 51 touchdowns during the process. He is also one of the most dynamic sprinters in the state, as well.
Sulser will play football at the University of Montana. It's a tradition in the Sulser family, with Gabe's father, Mark, playing for the Griz football team, and his older sister, Morgan, who is currently there for track and field. It's a tradition that Gabe explained he could not wait to be a part of.
"I think that's why I am so passionate about Montana, just being a Griz because I looked up to so many of those families like the Lebsock boys. You know I would sit on their lap in church you know when I was just a little kid I looked up to those guys so much. So many big name guys my Dad got to coach a little bit. Colin Dow, Sam Gratton it's guys you looked up to go growing up and now to be in their shoes to make a dream into a reality is really cool."
