Summary: The Golden Bears lost some talent from last year’s senior class but Coach Reser has confidence in his first team offense and defense. What he and the coaching staff have to do is work with the backups. That’s where they’ll earn their pay this season because that second group doesn’t have a lot of varsity experience. This is the last season in the TAAC for Gibsonburg before they depart for the Sandusky Bay Conference and the players clearly want to go out with a championship. They won a share of the TAAC title in 2016.
