L.E. Gibson has coached the Swedeborg Panthers for the last 11 years. LAST Thursday, HE coached his last home game for the Panthers…
Coach Gibson has volunteered his time during his tenure as the Panther Coach, as well as driving the bus to away games at no cost to the District. As Coach Gibson has often said about Coaching at Swedeborg,”It is the best non-paying job I have ever had!”

Coach Gibson is loved by his players and patrons WHILE helping prepare athletes to play basketball at the high school level, but he has also given students the opportunity to be part of an organized team that they might never have otherwise.

Coach Gibson was recognized with a Plague of Appreciation and a gift certificate to his favorite sporting goods store between games at his last home coaching game…. The highlight of the night however was when the District honored Coach “L.E.” by naming the gymnasium at Swedeborg, “Gibson Court.”

enjoy your retirement coach…..

The Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings met on Monday night headed in opposite directions, and that trend continued during the finale to Week 10. Neither side was particularly consistent, with defense and special teams playing big roles in a low-scoring affair, and for a while it appeared that those very units were going to end the Bears’ three-game skid. Nick Foles and Co. were listless for much of the evening, however, whereas Justin Jefferson helped propel Minnesota’s attack en route to a 19-13 Vikings victory.
Nick Foles was carted off the field after taking a hard hit during the final minute of the Bears’ loss…..Bears coach Matt Nagy said after the game that Foles suffered a right leg/hip injury on the play. The Bears are preparing for the possibility that the injury could be season-ending.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees suffered “multiple ribs fractures on both sides of his chest and a collapsed lung on the right side,” according to ESPN… CBS Sports confirmed Brees has suffered broken ribs and will be sidelined more than one week. The injuries were suffered over a two-week period and could require the veteran to miss time recovering. However, the current timetable for Brees’ recovery from the injury is not certain at this time.

With COVID-19 still raging across the country, it was long expected that many college football games would be postponed if not outright canceled over the course of the season. As we enter Week 12 of the 2020 season, there have now been 67 games affected by COVID-19 with most postponements coming as a result of contact tracing protocols that require players to quarantine for 14 days if they are deemed to have been in high-risk contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Week 11 saw eight Power Five games canceled or postponed with the addition of one game in the Pac-12 — Cal at UCLA — after those two programs saw their games erased. Now into Week 12, five games are already off the books including Ole Miss at Texas A&M and Arizona State at Colorado.

Some teams, such as Florida, Missouri, Houston, Memphis, Baylor, FAU, FIU, Virginia Tech, Arkansas State, Charlotte, Rice, Texas A&M and Arizona State have already experienced multiple game disruptions.

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee announced Monday that it will relocate all 13 of its previously determined preliminary round sites for the 2021 NCAA Tournament, with their sights set on moving the NCAA Tournament to a single host city.

“In recent weeks, the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee has engaged in a thorough contingency planning process to determine the most effective way to conduct a safe and healthy March Madness for all participants for the 2021 championship,” NCAA spokesman David Worlock said. “Through these discussions, it became apparent to the committee that conducting the championship at 13 preliminary round sites spread throughout the country would be very difficult to execute in the current pandemic environment.
