Gabriel Hampton graduated from Hercules High and was crowned Prom King in the same week. He is shown here at one of the after parties following the graduation. Hampton was offered a four year football scholarship to Southern University, but chose to enroll at S.F. City College instead. He has already started football practice there, and classes begin this week.
Hampton hopes to play professional football. He also loves to cook and would like to open his own restaurant one day. He will major in Business Administration, and his grandfather Waheed Zafir, has urged him to minor in a technical trade. Hampton’s parents, Tim and Sarah Hampton live in Hercules; he has three brothers and one sister.
