Athletes of the Week

MADISON – Brothers Gabriel and Kaleb Clark both have chosen football and hockey as their primary sports.

The boys attend Columbia Elementary School. Only one year separates the brothers in school. Gabriel is a fourth-grader, and Kaleb is in fifth grade.

Gabriel plays Upward Football, Division 4, with the Bears as a linebacker. He also plays hockey in the North Alabama Hockey Association (NAHA) at Huntsville Ice Complex.

Like his brother, Kaleb plays Upward Football, Division 4, with the Bears, but his position is wide receiver. Kaleb plans to get involved with track and midget racing.

Gabriel’s favorite sport is hockey because “it describes me …. I’m tough, fast and a good sport.” Kaleb’s is more partial to football “because it’s fun and a family tradition.”

Their sister Isabella is a Columbia first-grader. Their brother Eli is in pre-school. “Our parents are Nathan and Kristine Clark. Our dad works at Simplex Grinnell as an electronic systems sales rep, and our mom is a licensed cosmetologist,” Gabriel said.

“We moved to Madison in March 2015 for our dad’s job,” Gabriel said.

Q&A

Q: At what restaurants do you enjoy eating?
A: For Kaleb, it’s Cracker Barrel, while Gabriel prefers McDonald’s.

Q: What is your favorite food?
A: These brothers rate breakfast as the best and enjoy bacon, pancakes and eggs.

Q: What are your favorite dance teams?
A: Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs, Chicago Black Hawks and Alabama Crimson Tide.

Q: What’s your favorite performance memory?
A: Kaleb’s favorite memory is “when I ran my first touchdown!” Gabriel will never forget playing hockey against his coach and scoring on him.

Q: What do you like to do in your free time?
A: Gabriel and Kaleb both like the outdoors, riding bicycles, swimming, playing with friends, jumping on the trampoline and hanging out with family.
