MEDINA, Tennessee – After completing TSSAA High School’s athletic dead time, the South Gibson Hornets football team returned to work Monday morning to prepare for the 2021 season.

Similar to previous years, South Gibson comes again strongly into the playoffs and ends 2020 with 8 wins and one appearance in the quarter-finals of class 3A.

Although the Hornets lost some key offensive figures by the end, they are still planning to attack the opponent with their traditional triple-option football style this year. While his team continues to work on it this summer, head coach Scott Stidham explained why he still believes in this particular game plan.

“We just believe in what we do, and so do our children,” said Stidham. “I feel like our coaching staff is getting better every year because we understand a little more about what we’re doing and how teams are trying to stop us. Our children believe in it and have bought into it. “

South Gibson is now making the jump to Class 4A this season, joining Haywood, Milan, North Side, Crockett County and Obion County in Region 7. The Hornets are currently set to open the 2021 season at home against Lexington on August 20.
