Finishing with just two losses in 2016, Cardinal Gibbons and head coach Matt Dubuc vowed to come back and make this season special.
Opening up against the defending 8A state champion Miami Southridge Spartans, in the BCAA-GMAC Superintendent’s Cup at Traz Powell Stadium, it was the perfect place to show how much this team has improved.
From the beginning, it was evident that this was going to be a battle – and when the clock ticked down in the season opener, the Chiefs had stunned Southridge and the high school football world with a convincing 27-6 win.
