Early years[edit]

Born in Orange County, California and raised in Carlsbad, California, Compas is the youngest of two children of Gerald and Linda Compas (née Fitzgibbon). He is the grandson of Richard B. Fitzgibbon, Jr., nephew of Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, and great nephew of Alice Fitzgibbon Rose DelRossi, the former Democratic Mayor of Stoneham, Massachusetts.[1]

College career[edit]

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]

Professional career[edit]

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. Following his release from the Buccaneers, Compas was picked up by the New England Patriots.
