CORRYTON, Tenn. — Gibbs linebacker Wyatt West is the 10Sports defensive player of the week. The sophomore led the Eagles defense with 11 tackles, three tackles-for-loss and an interception in their win over Scott on Oct. 1.
"I found out through my parents and family...they kept tagging me in stuff [and] sharing it with everyone," he said about how he found out about winning our award.
Gibbs started the season 1-3, before receiving a COVID win against Central. The victory over Scott improved the Eagles' record to 3-3.
"Practice, really. That can help us. Our offense is outstanding," West said about what could Gibbs win its final four games.
The Eagles have a tough region matchup against Anderson County on Friday. The Mavericks are undefeated in region play.
