Salina Liberty honors Greg Gibson

Posted: Updated:
SALINA, Kan. (KAKE) -

Salina Central linebacker Greg Gibson is ready for his senior season.

One year after being diagnosed with a form of bone cancer, he has finished treatments reaching a goal he set for himself.

"Next year if every thing goes as planned, I should be back out here to play, I should be able to go through all the summer workouts and everything and be back relatively quick," Gibson said in 2017.

After several treatments and surgery on his leg he will be ready to take to the field for his final high school season.

"It's great, it's wonderful, it's truly a blessing, just ready to get back with me team," he added.

The Salina Liberty took note of Gibson's story and decided to honor him at their game on Saturday night. All of the players wore jerseys with his name on the back, which are to be auctioned off for charity. 

"It's great that the Salina Liberty can come out and do a thing like this, it's really nice, inspirational I hope some one can see this at home," Gibson concluded.

His message to anyone fighting cancer is to stay positive, put your faith in God, trust your friends and family they have your back through it all.
