Gibson, Ga--One of the smallest teams playing football in the state of Georgia resides in Gibson, Glascock County. The Panthers may be lacking in numbers but not in heart.
Glascock will have a tough road to go this year with a lot of new faces on offense, especially in the backfield where they lost Lewis Watkins. Some others guys will have to step up their game if they hope to score enough points to compete. One thing's for sure, pretty much everyone knows the defense, with experience, will have to carry them early on.
"For the first half of the year the defense is going to have to carry most of the team" said senior tyler Wiley "We have a young offense, we got three seniors on the offensive line and that's about it."
"I'm excited about the hard work" said coach Chris Kelly "This team, we have a long ways to go but they come ready to go to work every day and that's what we're looking forward to."
While they have yet to get back into a region, the panthers are hoping a succesful season could maybe lead to that. But with a tough schedule they'll have their hands full. It all starts tomorrow against Athens Academy followed by a battle with Warren County.
