And so begins another round of “This Guy Plays Notre Dame Football” here on OFD. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2019 season.

#76 Dillan Gibbons, OL

He will be entering his third year with the Notre Dame football team. Gibbons is an offensive lineman from Clearwater, Florida. He stands at 6’4 and weighs in at 313 lbs.

Gibbons red-shirted as a true freshman. He won scout team player of the year that season. Last year in 2018, he saw the field in five games as a reserve. He will be a backup this year with a veteran offensive line returning. Gibbons best asset will be providing depth at a position that gets beat up easily.

It is not about the hear and now for Dillan Gibbons. He is not projected to play much this year. It is more about the “End Game” for him.

Hey Dog Hey!

A big. strong dog resembles an offensive lineman. Great protector of the ones they love. Lineman protect the quarterback and Rottweiler’s protect their owner.

2019 Outlook

It does not look very good for Dillan Gibbons to get on the field in any meaningful way this upcoming season. The starting unit is pretty well set, and Gibbons may still be a guy behind the guy that’s already behind the guy.

There is nothing wrong with building depth at offensive line. Players will get hurt and you will need capable backups to step in and produce. The hope is that the 2+ years in the football program will benefit Dillan Gibbons if his name happens to be called.
