John Gordon Wins USA Today Super 25 Week 15
On Monday, November 19, 2018, I was excited to receive a Google alert stating that my son, John Gordon, was nominated for the USA Today Super 25 Top Star, Week 15 for high school football. As a parent, it is such a wonderful feeling when you see your child succeed at something they worked so hard at.
John Gordon is a senior quarterback at University Lab High School. He was nominated for the USA Today Super 25 after the quarterfinals of the Louisiana Division II playoffs (week 15). JG completed 16 of the 20 passes for 221 yards and 5 touchdowns. The Cubs played St. Louis Catholic out of Lake Charles with a 48-14 victory.
According to the USA Today post, there were more than 110,000 total votes cast, and JG beat out quarterback Aiden Longwell by more than 12,000 votes with 41% of the votes. Congratulations, JG, I am very proud of you and the Cubs. The Cubs are 12-0 and play in the Super Dome on December 7 against St. Thomas More. Let's Geaux Cubs - Take State! https://usatodayhss.com/2018/university-lab-la-quarterback-john-gordon-mckernan-voted-super-25-top-star
