#76 Dillan Gibbons

Dillan Gibbons is a guard that hails from Clearwater, FL and Clearwater Central Catholic High School. He is a sophomore, but he still has 4 years of eligibility left. Developing as a guy who can add to the offensive line, he still hasn’t found a place on the starting lineup just yet, but give it time. He is definitely an eager player.

3 Things to Know About Dillan Gibbons

  1. He was the first commitment of the 2017 recruiting class. He was amped to come to Notre Dame.
  2. In 2016 (his senior season), his high school team lost in the regional final of the 3A Florida state playoffs. They went into NINE overtimes to decide this one, with a final score of 69-62. At the end of regulation, the score was 21-21. That’s a lot of 2 point conversions to continue into that many overtime periods.
  3. Dillan tried to eat a 10-inch tall burger in 30 minutes at Eat’s American Grill in Tampa, FL. Bleacher Report was there to witness it.

Florida Seasoned Pepper.

Dillan is from Florida, and he seems to spice some things up for his life (see above with eating that huge burger). I’ve never heard of this before, but I also grew up very far away from Florida. He could also put this spice mixture in a giant burger to make it taste better.

2018 Forecast

Dillan Gibbons currently sits behind Tommy Kraemer, Trevor Ruhland, and Alex Bars on the depth chart for the guard position. It could be a while before he could get into the rotation. However, with 4 years of eligibility left, he could learn from some good players know to prime him to be the starter in a couple of seasons. He will need the strength and perseverance he had to eat most of that burger in 30 minutes. He can do it, and if he does, it could pay out in dividends.
