Gibson Becomes First Bridgeport College Wrestler, Commits to AB

After winning a state championship in the 160 lbs weight class in his senior season, Austin Gibson says he realized his full potential. On Friday, he committed to wrestle for the Alderson Broaddus Battlers, and said now he's after a national title in the college ranks.

Gibson, who was only the fourth state champion wrestler in BHS history, became the first Bridgeport athlete to commit to the sport in college when he signed his letter of intent on Friday.

Gibson says he will wrestle in either the 165 lb or 174 lb weight class in Philippi.
