In addition to several leadership positions within the community, Gorab has set a strong example for the program both on and off the field. He was recently named a team co-captain for the upcoming season. He has served as a tutor for the athletic department for the past three years, will provide teaching assistance this fall and most recently battled back from surgery due to an injury suffered at the end of last season.

Community

Gorab has been involved in numerous activities throughout the Brown and Providence communities over the past three years, highlighted by several leadership positions. He started the Brown University Chapter at Best Buddies, which is a program that pairs people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in one-to-one friendships with college students. Gorab helped spearhead the program’s annual connection with the Vartan Gregorian Elementary School in the East Side of Providence, as the team sends players to visit a dedicated classroom on a weekly basis. He is also a volunteer with Project GOAL, an after-school tutoring and soccer clinic program.

Competition

Gorab earned first-team All-Ivy recognition last season and started all 16 games for the Bears. The midfielder tied for the team lead with 10 points and led the way with six assists to go along with a pair of goals. He notched double-digit points for the second time in as many seasons after starting 16 games as a sophomore. He was also given the Heinz Kubel Award after the season, awarded to the team’s top offensive player.
