Expectations aren’t only high in Southern Gibson County for the 2021 Gibson Southern Titans football program, but they are high statewide.
In the Indiana Football Coaches Association (IFCA) Class 3A preseason poll released Monday, the Titans checked in ranked third and received one first-place vote.
The ranking comes as no surprise as the Titans bring back plenty of experience this season, including consensus four-star college recruit and Purdue commit Brady Allen at quarterback.
A handful of Titan players hold D1 college offers outside of Allen, including wide receiver Rory Heltsley and offensive lineman Cade Virgin.
The Titans will look to meet those expectations when they kickoff regular season action on August 20 when they host Columbus North.
