Gabriel Brandner

Gabriel Brandner

A senior at Duke University, Gabriel is an active member of the local Durham community serving with organizations such as the Duke Children’s Hospital and the Summit Church at Oxford Manor. When he is not studying for an upcoming test, you will find Gabriel on the gridiron for the Blue Devil football team. His footwork from years of playing left tackle will be sure to translate to the dance floor. He is expected to graduate from Duke in May and hopes to continue his studies as he pursues a career as a medical doctor.

A big fan of the Food Network, Gabriel is known as the chef amongst his friends often cooking his world famous coconut shrimp tacos (always a crowd pleaser).

Gabriel is passionate about serving others which is reflected in his work with Lideres Unidos Futbol Club, a free youth soccer program designed to encourage academic success and promote leadership qualities within students from several local high schools. Gabriel and a group of his teammates began LUFC in 2015 and the program continues today as a constructive way for youth to spend time after school.

You can watch Gabriel and the Blue Devil football team every Saturday this upcoming season.
