We gunna win!

I always respected and have to admit I liked him too as a coach. He breathed life into their program and made road trips to Manhattan pretty scary for many strong teams.

R.I.P. Coach!

I can still hear the "WE GOT PRIDE" chants from Manhattan. Gibson was a good coach and a good motivator.
