Devyn Gibbs Junior • Quarterback Mabank junior quarterback Devyn Gibbs is a player coach Zack Hudson is excited to inherit in his first season with the Panthers. “He is a big kid. He stands in that box pretty well, and he is not scared of contact,” Hudson said. “I think not only can he help us at quarterback but at some other places as well. It is one of those things where it is nice walking in to a 6 foot 5 inch, 205-pound quarterback. I think it is easier on the quarterbacks like Devyn to roll out and have some easier looks at things. We will have to establish the run game to be successful.” Gibbs has spent the summer improving his skills in the Panthers workouts to get ready for the first game Aug. 31 at Emory Rains. With a year of experience on the varsity level, Gibbs knows how to find reads and control the clock due to the Panthers style of play. If he can perform the way that Hudson hopes he can, fans could see the Most Valuable Player award come to Mabank for the first time since the 2008 season when Kolton Browning won the award. 20
