How 11 concussions led Gabe Ovgard (OSU Football, 2014-2016) to be more than an athlete

Beaver Tales

Gabe Ovgard had a "storybook" season in 2015. A walk-on wide receiver from Klamath Falls, Ovgard switched to safety and started two games, recording an interception and later earning a scholarship. A few months later, his athletic career came to an end after his (estimated) 11th concussion. Gabe has gone through ups and downs since then, struggling with the transition away from sports at first. Today, though, I can tell how much he's matured and learned from that process. Gabe, 24, works full-time for Nike and will share his one-year anniversary in September with his wife, Rylee. ---- The Beaver Tales Documentary Series comes out in a few months!
