GC’s Gavin Deck is the featured athlete this week for Jefferson State


In this week’s feature, we interview incoming freshman JSCC golfer Gavin Deck about how he plans to take over the golf world, one Dave Matthews song at a time. Today, We are Getting to Know…Gavin Deck.

1. Where are you from, and what’s your favorite thing about your hometown?

Gadsden, Alabama. It’s a small town, so I got to spend a lot of time with friends.

2. What is your preferred brand of golf clubs, and why?

Titleist. I have played well with their clubs, and I love the look and feel.

3. What is your favorite 90’s jam?

Crash into Me by Dave Matthews Band (I’ve been to two of their concerts).

4. You’ve played in a lot of golf tournaments. What’s your best golf memory?

About two years ago in a summer tournament, I started terrible, I mean really bad. I ended up shooting 74 though, and from then on I knew that I wanted to play college golf.

5. What is the last thing you watched on TV, and why did you choose to watch it?

Shark Week. I love sharks.

6. Who is your favorite golfer? Why?

Jordan Spieth. His mentality is great and he uses the same clubs as me. He never gives up, and if you watched him at The Open you know exactly what I mean.

7. If you were to get rid of one state in the U.S., which would it be and why?

Alaska. They live so much differently than we do.

8. Other than golf, what is your favorite sport/team?

Basketball. Duke University.

9. You have been given an elephant. You cannot give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?

Take it to my old high school and put it at the front gate.

10. What are your goals for this season?

Get better as a team, play as a team, and win as a team. We have a lot of talent and I want us to show it.

*Gavin’s views on Alaska do not reflect the views of JSCC Golf or Gadsden City Athletics.

Gadsden City is so proud of your hard work Gavin!
