Kettering, Gabe

Gabe Kettering is an imposing prop out of Lindenwood University in Missouri. Originally from O’Fallon, Missouri, Kettering played 8-Man and Center in High School before moving to prop in College, where he majored in chemistry with minors in math, philosophy and engineering physics. Kettering was teammates with fellow Utah Warriors Tai Kauwe, Sam Buckly and John DuPree at the Collegiate Rugby Shield over the summer of 2022.

“We have been tracking Gabe for the past two years and obviously felt he was worth a first-round pick despite currently playing overseas at Trinity College,” said Sparks. “He allows us to future proof our front row with a young American prop that is a dynamic ball carrier and technically sound scrummager. His notebook work proves that he is eager about improving and matched with his work ethic left a very positive impression on us.”
