Queen’s Gaels have been on mind of newest commit

Queen’s adds an out-of-province commit to their Class of 2017.

Tae Gordon, a quarterback from Cochrane High School, is a proven winner, and now he has the chance to take his game to the next level with the Queen’s Gaels.

In 37 league games with the Cochrane Cobras (Rockey View Football League), Gordon has only lost one. He capped off three seasons with provincial championships. In grade 10, he was rookie of the league. The following season, he was offensive back of the league and in his final year, he was league MVP.

With a determination to win, Gordon will fit in well with the Gaels. In 2016 at the Football Canada Cup, he had the chance to meet with some of Queen’s recruiters. He said the team has been on his mind ever since. “It was clear from the beginning how seriously they take their football program,” he said.

“Head Coach Sheehan has a rich background of knowledge and I can’t wait for the opportunity to learn from someone who knows the ins and outs of Canadian university football,” he added.

Gordon, who is from Cochrane, Alberta, has suited up for Team Alberta U18 and Team South in the Alberta Senior Bowl. The ten-year veteran is 5’8, 180lbs.

Currently enrolled in the biomedical sciences program, Gordon said that Queen’s education is second to none.

Before leaving a school he has since made his mark on, there is one person in particular he would like to thank. “My high school coach, Coach McNab, has mentored me on and off the football field,” he said. “He shaped my football skills as well as skills I will use for the rest of my life.”
