Baseball Adds Cameron Gibson for 2014
Junior transfer hit .352 for Chipola last season after beginning his collegiate career at Georgia Tech
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Newly appointed Jacksonville Head Coach Tim Montez has announced the addition of Cameron Gibson (Kennesaw, Ga.) to the Dolphins roster for the 2013-14 academic year. A transfer from Chipola College [Fla.], Gibson joins the program as a junior starting this fall.
“Cameron is a sleek footed outfielder who can hit in the top of the order, steal bases, and has gap power,” said Montez of the righthander. “On top of all that he is a scholar athlete in the classroom. We look forward to Cameron and his family becoming part of our program.”
Signed by Georgia Tech out of high school, Gibson (6’0”, 200 lbs) was part of the Yellow Jackets 2012 ACC Championship team. Last season at Chipola hit a team best .352 while leading the team to a 38-21 overall record. During the course of the season he also led the Indians with 24 stolen bases (.774) and 29 walks.
Named A Perfect Game All-American, Gibson was an All-District, All-Area, and All-State as a senior, under head coach Chad Kitchen at Salem High School. Playing in the outfield, infield, and pitcher, he graduated as the school’s career leader in batting average, home runs, and still holds the program’s mark for career RBI (86) and saves (11). Gibson capped off his four-year letter winning career by hitting .495 as a senior with five home runs. The Georgia All-State All-Star game participant also played two seasons of football.
