Countdown to Kickoff: Gibbs Eagles

CORRYTON, Tenn. (WVLT) -- It will be hard for history to repeat itself at Gibbs.

The Eagles had a historic 2010, winning 11 football games on their way to a birth in the state quarterfinals.

And gone is Andy Hibbett. The electrifying running back tallied over 2,300 yards with 30 touchdowns last year. His cleats will be impossible to fill.

With that said, Gibbs' head coach Brad Conley will likely use several tailbacks to carry the load. Look for Ty Johnson to lead that group.

Conley also likes his offensive and defensive lines. Which is a good thing, considering Gibbs will be developing a quarterback as the season rolls on.

Gibbs opens up the season at home August 19 against Scott.
