From US Concarno, where Gabin Gillow has made some national appearances (2018-19 season), to Hartsville in the US, where he plays football for his university, Coker College, the Atlantic crossing was “only”. “I went from the west coast, in Brittany, to the east coast, in America, in South Carolina. I’m two hours from the sea”. The same sea. But from the other side.
“The best teams should have N3 level”
Over the past year and a half with Atlantic, BTS, and an international commercial license in his pocket, Gabin Guillou has forged his way through the cosmopolitan mode of “American Lifestyle.” “My English isn’t top notch, but since I’m roommates with a Brazilian, an Irishman, an Italian and an American, we obviously speak English and I manage.

Next May I need to check my bachelor’s degree in “business” but I won’t be back right away because I want to pursue a master’s degree in 15 months and have to find another university for that”.
The present will be a good reminder of the 2021-22 promo. From his Cobras team in general: “We won our conference, which has never happened to our college”.

Americans of the woods soon?
Medal around his neck, trophy in hand and number 29 on his back (obviously), Capin Killue poses for his friends in Finisterre, who will be happy to hear from him through the newspaper. La Forêt-Fouesnant (D2), Coucous, where striker Theo Lamarre and goalkeeper Jason Fesquet played, were two former American students live: “I’m training with them before I leave in mid-January. La Forêt is the club where I started, one day I’ll join them, it’s Sure”. Maybe in R3 in a few years? “That’s the goal”. From Concarno to Foret-Fossant, it will be America!
