Massillon (Ohio) Washington safety/running back Brian Gamble is one of the top two-way players in Ohio.
After rushing for 1,571 yards and having 100 tackles as a junior, he's doing everything he can to help his team off to a good start. But his best last week wasn't enough to keep Washington from getting blown out by a very good Cincinnati Moeller team.
"We got beat 48-14," Gamble, a two-star prospect that is 5-foot-11 and 185 pounds, said. "We didn't play the way we should have. It was at Paul Brown Stadium, where the Bangles play. We played down there last year, but it wasn't as fun this time. We just made too many mistakes."
Gamble has had a good start personally, though.
He had a good game during week two with 165 yards and four touchdowns. This week Washington will play host to Chandler (Ariz.) Hamilton in one of the games that are a part of the Kirk Herbstreit Challenge.
"We saw on Rivals that they have a good linebacker and a receiver," Gamble said. "So we know they're going to be tough."
When it comes to recruiting, Gamble has offers from Akron, Ball State and Eastern Michigan. He's been getting consistent calls in September.
"I've talked to a few new teams like West Virginia and Illinois," he said. "I've also talked to Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Akron. West Virginia and Illinois are talking to me about offering. That'd be pretty sweet. But I'm just not too worried about recruiting right now."
