Gibbs has a new head football coach. But it will be the same old Gibbs that the Cougars will face on Friday night at Corryton. Don’t look for Gibbs to do anything any differently when the Eagles take the field tomorrow evening. Campbell Head Coach Justin Price says, “Coach Brad Turner, a Gibbs assistant coach for 15-years, still has the Eagles playing its trademark chaotic defense and triple option offense.”
“They’re OK with getting two and three yards at a time and want to keep the ball,” said Price. He goes on to say that Gibbs plays tough, and when they execute they slow the game down and try to take teams out of the game.
Time of possession and limiting turnovers will be key for Campbell. Price recalls that in the 2015 meeting with Gibbs his Cougars only had six possessions. The 8th year head coach adds, “We know we’re going to get their best effort.”
