Gibbs was an exceptional youth talent, which led to much speculation about his ultimate AFL drafting . In 2004 he won Glenelg's Under 17s Best and Fairest award, despite spending part of the season playing SANFL reserve grade. That year he also captained the South Australian under 16s team at the national championships.

In Round 7 of the 2005 season, at age 16, he debuted in Glenelg's League team and was a regular until the end of the 2006 season. Playing as a teenager against grown men in the SANFL, Gibbs excelled, coming third in the Club's 2006 best and fairest, and dominating recent ex-AFL players such as Damian Cupido  during the season.

He featured prominently in the 2006 under-18 national championships and won All-Australian selection. He also co-captained the Australian youth side against an Irish youth side in an international tournament in Australia in 2006.


Gibbs attended Brighton Secondary School, where he sat his SACE in 2006.
