For the past year numerous division one schools have been seeking the 3 star defensive back recruit Jaxon Gibbs out of The Colony, Texas. Earlier on this week he signed his letter of intent to the University of North Texas. After speaking with him about his goals/expectations he stated that in a few years he would enjoy being apart of the NFL.

Gibbs has been playing the game he loves since he was 4 years old and when he found out about UNT’s offer he said “I felt extremely blessed.” It’s his dream to make it to the big leagues some day and this was just the first step to getting  there. The dedication he has for this sport is extremely high for being so young. Always perfecting his craft and bettering himself and never taking a day off. Having this being his first and last year at The Colony he weighed in on his high’s and low’s from the overall season stating, “Beating the Prosper Eagles was a high and his low being that he hurting his ankle at the very end of the season.”

There is a lot of pressure being a student athlete but with the sacrifices he has endured in his life, his hard work has paid off by getting him a full scholarship to further his education. After he signed he gave all glory to god for blessing him with the ability to even play the sport and is very thankful he took advantage of it.

The greatest advice he could give to up and coming recruits is, “Never give up, things will get hard but you just have to work harder to get through them.” He is inspiration for this local town and will have a huge impact on the youth of this city as well with the ones at The Colony High School.
