The Rev. Quinton Gibson is the pastor at St. James United Methodist Church in Temple, Texas. Normally, that wouldn’t mean much around here, except that Gibson has a connection to two people who seem very important to the future of Auburn football.
He’s not his natural father, Gibson said, but he’s been a father figure to Auburn assistant coach Curtis Luper.
“We’re close,” Gibson said. “We’re real close.”
Gibson also is the preacher at the church attended by Auburn recruit Lache Seastrunk, a big-time running back at Temple (Texas) High.
