"Trent Gordon is an amazing young man. He is a two-year starter for us and the next in line of a host of great DBs to come out of Manvel. He is extremely fast and very, very intelligent. His mom is an engineer. She must be very athletic too because her son can flat play! He is a great student, taking almost all honors classes and being ranked in the top 10 percent of his class. He is a great tackler and plays with a very high motor. His coverage skills are very good too! He is an amazing person both on and off the field. State College has hit a home run with this one!"
