Gabriel likes to shake and bake – on the basketball court and in the kitchen. He gets some coaching on how to shake and bake on the hardwood at Inspire Courts, a cavernous multi-sport facility in Gilbert, from Gabriel Rogers, who demonstrates dribbling and shooting drills. The two Gabriels end the lesson with an intense session of one-on-one. When he isn’t on the basketball court, 13-year-old Gabriel likes to spend time in the kitchen.
“He is very into helping us cook and bake,” says group home manager Jessica. “He is really interested in learning to cook.” Gabriel says he likes to cook eggs for breakfast, but what he really likes to do in the kitchen is bake brownies and cupcakes. “Eating them is the most fun part,” he jokes.
Gabriel is in the eighth grade and enjoys all his classes. “But my favorite part of school is hanging out with friends,” he confesses. On fall Sundays, Gabriel loves to watch professional football on TV. His favorite team is, of course, the Arizona Cardinals. Gabriel says he would like to be the only child in a forever family, but that he also gets along well with other children. “I want a family with dogs, a mom and a dad,” he says. “I want a family that is active and likes to go places.”
