Myke Gobert ’10 signs contract with indoor football league

Former Cru football player Myke Gobert ’10 signed a contract with the Louisiana Swashbucklers of the Southern Indoor Football League in January. Gobert was an offensive lineman for the Cru from 2006-2009, and he was a two-time American Southwest Conference All-Conference selection. Gobert also earned All-South Region honors as a senior in 2009. He was a talented and versatile lineman for the Cru, playing tackle, guard and center during his career. Gobert is a native of Houston and graduated from Cy-Ridge High School.

The SIFL season kicked off with Louisiana facing the Albany Panthers March 11th. The Swashbucklers are based in Lake Charles and the team went 5-6 last season to finish in fourth place.

“Coming to UMHB was a true blessing,” Gobert said. “Not only did the football program prepare me for professional football, but it helped me prepare for life after football. Offensive Line Coach Joe George had a great impact on me. He challenged me to never accept anything but the best for myself and my teammates. I will carry that with me forever.”
