Langford (S.D.) head coach Paul Raasch believes that North Dakota State is getting a tremendous running back and person in new football commit Lincoln Gibbs.

"Lincoln is obviously a great player on the field, and he's a hard worker off it," Langford head coach Paul Raasch said to Scout.com. "He has a love for the game and a passion to be the best player he can be. Lincoln talked to me about things and kept me informed of the teams that were interested and the process. There were several teams in contact with him and I met a few of the guys recruiting this area. Tyler Roehl came to Langford to watch Lincoln work out and was great to talk to, he was very helpful to me explaining what the process would be."

"Lincoln is an explosive player with tremendous speed and good size for a back," Raasch explained. "Right now he's 5'11" and around 200 lbs, and he ran a 10.7 100 this spring. He also has great vision and instincts as a RB and is extremely quick to the line of scrimmage and hole. His strength is running the ball, but he can also catch the football out of the backfield so he is versatile, and his blocking really improved over the course of last season and I anticipate will continue to get better this year as well. His work ethic is second to none. He lives in the weight room and also does speed and power training. Lincoln will be one of several senior leaders on our team this year.  I'm sure he will be the focus of a lot of teams to try and stop but he will be up to the challenge, and we also have another terrific and explosive player in Chance Olson at QB that will take pressure off of him.  Those two complement each other very well."
