It’s Week 5 of the high school football season, and the Gibbs Eagles are hungry for a win. The Campbell County Cougars are facing a team that is 0 & 3 against quality opponents; Austin East, South Doyle and Davey Crockett. Gibbs is a program that has Campbell Coach Justin Price’s full attention. The 8th year coach calls “staying focused on every single play key.”
Price adds that, “Gibbs is methodical in everything it does, and you cannot lose focus, because they’ll make you pay for it.” Price wants every Cougar drive to end in a kick, punt or PAT, preferably a PAT. He adds that you don’t want to turn the ball over and give Gibbs a short field at all.
“Landon Addington is playing such smart football right now as a quarterback. He’s not forcing any throws. His ability to run is helping us. You never know where Gibbs is going to be defensively, and if you can find those open areas, you can get some big plays. A lot of that starts with Landon,” said Coach Price.
Gibbs opened the season with a 30-12 loss at Austin East, lost at home to South Doyle 31-7 and last week dropped a tough 55 to 28 game to Crockett at Jonesborough. The 2 & 2 Cougars have defeated Cherokee and Morristown East while falling to Crockett and Oak Ridge.
