"It was between Penn State and Boston College. I talked to my family, I talked to my coaches, my teammates, I chose Boston College.

I think what really made the difference was the coaches. Kind of made me feel like part of the family and I think that's very key anywhere you go because after football you have to have people to help you succeed in life."

One of our contemporaries dubbed [forward Jake] Layman "40-love" because he moves like a jumbo sized tennis player.

Gibbons agreed, saying: “I had interest from a couple teams, but the Penguins kind of had a leg up on everyone else because I’ve been here and I experienced it. I felt comfortable here.
