King senior Kelsey Gibson, one of the region’s top golfing prospects, has earned a scholarship offer from Southern Miss, Lions coach Barrett Zebos said.

Gibson reached state this fall by shooting an even-par 71 in the 2A-4 region tournament at Heritage Springs (Trinity), which was good for second place.
