Personal Message

Prospective Coaches:

My name is Gavin Tucker. I’m from Middletown, Delaware and a member of the 2023 graduating class of Appoquinimink High School.

I play Linebacker and Safety positions on my high school varsity team. On the field, I contribute the most to the pass game and outside run/jet sweep defense because I can get out my stance quickly, track the ball, and move sideline to sideline to make tackles. I also continue to learn different defensive coverages as well as how to better read offensive lines, and better ways to get off blocks.

I want to play college football because I love the sport. I work on my craft every day. I am always in the weight room or working on something I need to improve. I maintain a constant off-season workout schedule to keep my body, footwork, and endurance in the best shape possible. I am always watching film on my opponent studying ways to beat them.

As a student I am hard working, focused, behaved, and very engaged in the classroom. I currently have a 3.23 GPA. My pathway is Engineering. I’m pursuing Robotics Engineering in high school and plan to major in Engineering in college.

My goals are continuing to be an honor roll student-athlete, winning a championship, making first team All-District and top 100 for DIAA.

I would love to meet you to talk about the possibility of being a part of your team in 2023. If there is anything I can do to help you decide whether I am a good fit for your program, please don’t hesitate to ask. If you have any questions, I look forward to answering them.

Thank you for your time!
