West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Our high school fall camp tour takes us to West Fargo tonight, where the Packers were a breath away from upsetting
eventual state champion Bismarck, but now it's nearly a total rebuild job
for Jay Gibson, but he likes where his team sits under center.
Jay Gibson- West Fargo Head Coach: "The quarterback position is a position where we have some experience. Actually offensively it's pretty smooth because both of them are smart, they got a good handle on what they did last year, so they are telling kids all the time hey you are on the wrong side, you have to be over here. They are taking care of business, so that has helped."
When you look at your goals this season what are you hoping to get out this, I know everyone wants to say I want to be playing that third Friday in November, what are you hoping to get out of this team this season?
Gibson: "We don't have a saying and we don't have a rally cry and I know that good stuff, but we really want to have a starting point. That's why it's so hard to talk about things right now. You could go and get spanked by Minot and then ok here is our base level and we need to go from there. Obviously we want to make the playoffs and I really think even though we have so much inexperience, it's not going to matter. We have some really decent athletes and they are lacking in experience only. If you can just get them to work together, that's our goal at the end of the year hopefully be moving forward and have everyone healthy and we are playing our best football."
West Fargo wraps up our first weekend on the tour, tonight at 10 we'll show you where we head for week two!
