Gibbs played defensive tackle for Waggener for two years, Johnson said. Johnson expressed his grief on Twitter after he learned about Gibbs’ death.

Waggener Football HC @Waggener_FB: “By far the worst part of coaching. I received the call I never want to receive, one of my son’s from my team was murdered in west end. #hurt”
