2020 INF/OF Will Gibbs Commits to Olney Central

Congrats on your new commitment! What is it about Olney Central that excites you the most?

The chance to continue my baseball career and compete for two years at a high level excites me very much. It’s a great opportunity for me to develop. It feels like a place I can call home for the next two years. 

This was your first season playing with Top Tier. Tell us about your experience and what it means to wear the TT’s.

I had a great experience and enjoyed my first year with Top Tier. Everyone treated me like family. To wear TT is to hold yourself to a high standard and to accept nothing less than your very best.

Talk a little bit about the recruiting process and how everything went down.

The recruiting process was stressful at times but I just kept working to put my name out there with the help of Coach Thompson, Top Tier and many others I was blessed with the opportunity to go to OCC.

What were some of the priorities you looked at when deciding where you wanted to commit?

I wanted to go to a place where I could play sooner, be successful academically,  develop my game and win. Coach Conley has a great program at OCC and moves players on to select Universities every year. I’m looking forward to being a part of his program.

What challenges do you see ahead of you before you get to campus?

One big challenge is to be physically ready to play at the speed of the college game. I look forward to the challenge and getting myself ready for success at the next level.

What are some of the goals you have set for yourself as a college baseball player?

I would like to be a major contributor to my team’s success. My goal is to be someone that my teammates know they can count on to compete and always play hard no matter the circumstances.

Is there anybody you would like to give a shout-out or thanks to?

I would like to thank Coach Plante, Coach Griff and Coach Willsey for the opportunity to play for a first class organization committed to getting players to the next level. I would recommend Top Tier to anyone who has aspirations of playing college baseball.
