Early on, Gordon lined up for one-on-ones with a former teammate from Melvindale, leapt for a pass and came down hard, whipping his head against the ground, producing a momentary blackout.
A softer player might have been finished for the day, but Gordon showed his mettle and got back in there.
"After I came back I ran like three routes," he told GSN last night. "I ran an out-and-up, a dig, and I ran a comeback route.
"It went pretty good. I just wanted everybody to see I could bee a downfield threat. … Show them that I can be an All-American on defense, but also I can be an All-American wide receiver, too. That's my focus this season."
The 6-foot-2 athlete with a Michigan State offer is working through the summer at events like last Friday's to continue to build his reputation as one of the best receivers in the Midwest.
Right now recruiting is in somewhat of a holding pattern as he plans to continue weighing his options and explore opportunities and programs at one-day camps.
"That's just where I'm at right now," he said.
Gordon is also getting to know his new teammates at Inkster, and plans on leading the squad to great things next fall.
"That's my focus now," he said. "We're loaded."
