At Bradenton Manatee
Score:
Manatee 49, Gibbs 6

Spring game-breakers: Despite the score, there were a few bright spots for the Gladiators. Starting quarterback and rising junior Patric Jones was hit and hurried all night, even knocked out of the game at one point. Still, he managed to complete 9 of 13 passes for 124 yards with one interception. … Rising junior Zacari Gibbons was on the receiving end of two of Jones’ big completions. Gibbons finished with just less than 100 yards receiving. … The Gladiators defense had a rough night but rising junior Albert Laskett hauled in two interceptions, one on the second pass of the game and the other in the fourth quarter. … Gibbs finally broke through Manatee’s second-team defense and scored on a 6-yard run by rising junior Jalen Williams in the third quarter.

Did you know? Gibbs fielded a much-depleted squad. As many as 25 players were unable to suit up, including rising senior Emmanuel Stewart.

Audible 1: “We got handled by Manatee last spring and then we started the fall season 4-0. We’d like to be where Manatee is someday; to get better, you have to play the best.” — Gladiators coach Antonio Knox

Audible 2: “Stewart is going to give us a lot more options. He’ll play quarterback, running back. receiver. We’ll move him around to get him touches.” — Knox
