Play of the Day

WR Brandon Gibson laid out to haul in a 45-yard pass from QB Donovan McNabb in this morning's one-on-one drills.

Gibson would like to teach history at the high school level when his playing days are over. His uncle, Vaughn Williams, was a DB for the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts in the 1980s, and is now a high school teacher.

"I'd like to follow that same path, I think. I love football and I love dealing with kids, and I'm really passionate about history," Gibson said. "I think it would be great to do that one day."

Gibson earned his degree in history at Washington State, with an emphasis on teaching studies, earning Pac-10 Conference academic honors
