Trey Gibbs, father of Soldotna High School football star Drew Gibbs, reports to us that his son’s knee surgery on Thursday at the hands of Dr. James Andrews was a success. Drew tore his ACL in the opening game of the season.
Today, Drew will return to the Andrews Institute for Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, Florida for his first check-up and to meet the physical therapist, who will start him on his rehab regimen.
On Saturday, the pair will fly back to Alaska to begin working on rehabbing Drew’s knee, so he’s able to continue pursuing his dream of playing college football.
You’ll be able to follow Drew’s journey in the High School Football America blog A Family Affair.
