Gordon was a linebacker at Northwest in 1995 and 1996 and was a first-team All-MIAA performer as a senior. He was a graduate assistant at Northwest in 1998 and 1999, working with the linebackers, when the Bearcats won back-to-back conference and national championships. He played at Blinn Junior College prior to coming to Northwest.


A native of Quitman, Texas, Gordon earned his bachelor's degree at Northwest in 1996 and his master's in 1999.
