Early years

Born in Orange County, California and raised in Yorba Linda, and Carlsbad, Compas is the youngest of two children of business executive Gerald and Linda Compas. He is the grandson of Richard B. Fitzgibbon, Jr. and nephew of Richard B. Fitzgibbon III.[1]

College career

After graduating from Carlsbad High School in 2004, Compas played football at UC Davis. In 2004, he was redshirted and later selected as Scout Defense Player of the Week after the Northern Colorado game. The following year, he started the first six games as right guard, before being sidelined by injury. In 2006, he started all eleven games at right tackle and picked up one tackle (on an interception) early in the third quarter against cross town rival Sacramento State University. That same year he was an All-American pick by The Sporting News. Then in 2007, he earned second consecutive GWFC all-academic honors while managing to start eleven games.[2]

Compas received a B.A. in International Relations from UC Davis in 2008.

Professional career

Before his career with the Buccaneers, Compas signed with the Oakland Raiders as a free-agent in April 2009.[3][4] On September 1, 2009, he was claimed off waivers from the Oakland Raiders by Tampa Bay.[5][6] He was released by the Buccaneers on September 4, 2010.
