Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Plant High School
Carson Gibbs is a volleyball player from Plant High School. She honors the game through respect.“'Honoring the game'” can be interpreted in many ways, however, to honor the sport I love, volleyball, I make sure every time I step out onto the court, I treat every aspect with respect. When thinking of how to place honor on a sport, my mind wanders towards materialistic rewards: trophies, medals, and ribbons. Yet, these objects will never fully honor the sport I love. These noble words mean much more than a record, they symbolize respect."
Carson’s teacher and former coach uses the phrase ‘above and beyond’ when describing Carson. “As a three year starter and floor captain on Plant’s volleyball team, Carson is the leader of the offense who competes with passion and humility. She is the kind of athlete who will make an outstanding play and rather than taking personal credit, she instead high fives the teammate who gave her the opportunity to make the play. She pushes herself each year to better herself on and off the court—she challenges herself at practice, puts in extra hours in the weight room, maintains a perfect GPA, and somehow finds time to give back to her school and community. Her work ethic is contagious.”
