A four-year starter at Charlotte, Gibson was named Atlantic 10 midfielder and Freshmen-of-the-Year for the 2009 season. He was a four-time All Atlantic 10 conference First Team selection. He was twice named to the Hermann Award watch list and helped the 49ers earn a CUSA Conference Championship his senior year.[1]

Professional career

Originally invited to the 2014 Major League Soccer Combine, Gibson was projected as a second round pick due to his vision and work ethic.[2] He was signed as a rookie to the Scorpions leading into the 2015 NASL season.[3] He quickly received playing time during the 2015 NASL Spring Season and ended the year starting 22 matches.

The Scorpions suspended operations following the 2015 NASL season and Gibson signed with expansion side Rayo OKC on January 26, 2016.[4]
