I've worked many soccer camps with Gibbo over the years and observed as he excites and empowers kids to reach their potential, my own included. His spirited passion for people translates to a great teacher and a great friend. This journal of his life gives us all occasion to absorb a bit more of his wisdom of the game and his philosophy of life. Paul Gibbons is a world class coach.

Paul, in a quiet, caring, and gracious spirit, simply falls into step and puts into place the missing pieces of the puzzle to make the parts of the whole come together. His eyes give away his warm heart and we are most grateful for what he brings to Botswana every year. We look forward once again to hear the chants of "Gib-bo, Gib-bo-"

Driven, dedicated, and as passionate as a soccer coach could possibly be. GIBBO- In My Life, finds Paul sharing the story of what made him that way, and in so doing, he presents an excellent blueprint, not just for soccer coaches, but for all teachers. Bill Meredith,
