2021 Snapshot: Gamble Montessori

There is a good mix of veteran and young players at Gamble Montessori. The Gators have themselves in position to make the playoffs for the first time in school history.

Not playing a full season last fall may see this squad struggle with continuity to start 2021. Once they have a couple of games under their belts Gamble Montessori should be enjoyable to watch, especially on offense. The Gators have some gifted skills positions players.

“Our team strength is going be our offensive line. This offseason we have put a greater focus on getting in the weight room. The offensive linemen have been working very hard at getting stronger and more agile,” head coach Robert Rachel states.

Like all small schools, depth is always a factor. For the Gators to have success they will need to stay healthy. If they do that, there is a very good chance Gamble Montessori will pick up one of the 16 playoff berths in a very deep Region 24. Make no mistake about it, that accomplishment will be well earned.
