Garrett Gilbert Moves On

Updated: Friday, July 11 2014, 03:49 PM CDT

Like a sure-handed wide receiver on third down, Garrett Gilbert has a trusty, go-to description for his college career.

"I definitely had a bit of a roller coaster college experience," Gilbert admits.

But does Gilbert even like roller coasters?

"I don't particularly love them," Gilbert told KEYE TV.

But the quarterback is certainly used to them. Because just like a roller coaster, his college career had highs, lows, and screams - the good and bad kind.

This week, Gilbert is back at his former high school - working as a counselor at the Hill Country Passing Academy. It's here, at Lake Travis, where Gilbert's legend grew like your waistline on a Texas BBQ pilgrimage. But after a UT tenure that nobody would call "well done", the former national high school player of the year had to leave his hometown and dream school.

"Why didn't this work? I still don't know," Gilbert admitted. "To this day I'm still grateful and thankful to have had the opportunity."

A transfer to SMU resurrected Gilbert's college career. Playing for June Jones and the Mustangs, Garrett says, brought the fun back to football. But despite passing for nearly 6,500 yards and accounting for 50 touchdowns in two seasons, Gilbert was not invited to February's NFL combine.

"Control what I can control," Gilbert explained. "That meant prepare myself as best I could for pro day."

Being drafted by the Rams in the sixth round of May's NFL Draft closed the book on Gilbert's college career. And while you might think he's turned the page on that sad story at Texas, Gilbert tells us that's actually one of the most important chapters in that book.

"For me to be able to go through those few years at Texas where things weren't easy and be able to come out of it, I think it made me more mentally prepared than any quarterback in this past draft," Gilbert said.

Garrett hopes he's now thru with the roller coaster portion of his career. But if the rookie QB feels like he's missing out on his familiar ups and downs, Six Flags St. Louis, Missouri's self-proclaimed coaster capital, is just 30 miles from the Rams facility.
