It isn’t very often that the simple dribbling ability of a high school girls basketball player drives her team’s fans to shrieks of delight.
But as natural as Erin Gibbons made it look as she bounced the ball between her legs and took off one way while leaving her defender spinning in the opposite direction, her shiftiness was hardly second-nature.
Just like her knack for finding open Wyoming Valley West teammates with pinpoint passes, for changing games with critical shots and for dogging opponents with relentless defense, Gibbons spent years perfecting her ballhandling skills.
“All those moves that I do, I worked so hard just to get one of them down,” Gibbons said.
It all paid off when Gibbons led Valley West to the school’s first-ever state playoff victory, was chosen to the Pennsylvania All-State team, and was named the Times Leader Girls Basketball Player of the Year.
Along the way, Gibbons had her Valley West school mates, most notably a group of regulars from the school’s lower levels, hooting and howling at her crossover dribbles and behind-the-back magic that often left defenders dumb-founded.
“When I would come down the floor, I always had a different move,” said Gibbons, who perfected her game as a point guard under the guidance of Darnell Ford of My Sky Elite training facility in Wilkes-Barre.
