Gabriele earns all-state honorable mention status for Class C

Hillsdale High School senior guard Mitchell Gabriele might be able to get some of the bad taste out of his mouth from a first-round district loss to Coldwater with the aid of his latest honor.

Gabriele was announced this week as an honorable mention all-state selection by the Associated Press. The fiery floor general averaged 21.3 points per game, including a 43-point outburst earlier in th year, to go along with 4.7 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 3.2 steals. He also made a league-high 53 3-pointers in helping the Hornets to a 14-7 record overall.

The only question now is: Why can’t this stud get at least a D-III school to bite? He’s not that small, he doesn’t lack confidence by any means and continued to mature throughout his senior campaign. I’m interested as to what is keeping small college coaches at arm’s length.

I am what you think I am — a journalist. Actually when I was hired at my current job, which by the way is Sports Editor of the Hillsdale Daily News in Hillsdale, Mich., I applied for a position titled "Wordsmith", so at my best I'll call myself a writer attempting to be a wordsmith extraordinaire.
