Mililani quarterback Dillon Gabriel became the 12th different sophomore to already earn at least one scholarship offer from a Division I school on Monday.

The 6-foot, 180-pound lefty-throwing QB for the Trojans announced on Twitter that he received a scholarship offer from coach Ken Niumatalolo at Navy.

Navy has been busy in the islands the last few days, handing out offers to not one, but two defensive ends at Kapolei.

Gabriel, who led the Trojans to the Division I state title as a sophomore, threw for 2,656 yards and 28 touchdowns in 12 games. He also ran for 265 yards and seven TD’s, showing the dual threat the Midshipmen look for in their quarterbacks.

Gabriel also played in four games as a freshman and has already surpassed 3,000 career passing yards with 35 touchdowns with two full years still ahead of him.

That’s awesome. Kenny, our old buddy, recruiting my nephew. Garrett is proud. How ironic is is that?

LOL, the imposter strikes again. Nice try. I’m in no way related to the Gabriels or know the Navy coach. This guy tries to make me look like an insider wannabe. No connections in local athletics, just a “man in the stands” who enjoys watching.

Weird? Because I have no connections in local athletics and I’m just a fan? Stop judging people.
