Gabe David Hoover (b. Sept. 25, 2000) is a preferred walk-on wide receiver from McPherson High School who redshirted in 2019 and is majoring in finance.
Hoover, who did not see any game action during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season nor the 2021 season, prepped under head coach Jace Pavlovich at McPherson, where he helped the Bullpups to secure an 11-1 record and a trip to the state semifinals in 2018.
He earned first-team all-state honors as a senior from The Topeka Capital-Journal, The Wichita Eagle and the Kansas Football Coaches Association, while he was an honorable mention pick by the former two organizations as a junior.
Hoover hauled in 121 catches for 1,856 yards and 27 touchdowns for the Bullpups over his junior and senior seasons. He prepped with K-State sophomore tight end Cody Stufflebean.
