Countdown To Kickoff: Gibbs

GIBBS, Tenn. - 2013 brings about some changes for Gibbs, but none are bigger than moving up in classification. "I think the biggest thing we face this year is the adjustment of moving up in classification. Gibbs has traditionally been a Double-A Class 4 playoff team. And now we're going to play 5A football," says Eagles head coach Brad Conley.

Developing depth will be the key for Gibbs as they larger teams with deeper rosters. Eagles Senior Brock Davis agrees. "It's going to be tough. We're playing these big teams every week. And it's going to be hard to recorver, but I believe we can do it," Davis says.

The Eagles return 6 starters on both sides of the ball. That should help Gibbs as they make their way through a new district.

The Eagles open the season August 23rd at home against Carter.
