Pinson Valley standout junior running back Nick Gibson was held out of Friday’s jamboree at Hewitt-Trussville with a shoulder injury.
Pinson Valley head football coach Matt Glover said Gibson had a slight sprain in his right shoulder that wouldn’t keep him out of a regular season game. Gibson suffered the injury about two weeks ago, Glover said. Gibson should be on the field next Friday in the season opener at Class 4A No. 2 Oneonta.
Gibson holds scholarship offers from Arkansas, Florida State, Mississippi State and Tennessee.
Gibson has rushed 203 times for 1,519 yards in his two-year Pinson Valley career thus far. He has rushed for 13 touchdowns. As a sophomore, he caught 15 passes for 260 yards and three scores.
In Pinson Valley’s May spring football game at Clay-Chalkville, Gibson rushed 16 times for 68 yards and two touchdowns in one half. He also caught three passes for 33 yards in the half, a 27-14 loss to the Cougars.
