Hometown Sports Hero: Steve Gordon

CUMBERLAND, R.I. (WPRI) — The Cardi’s Hometown Sports Hero for this week is Cumberland wrestling coach Steve Gordon.

Gordon founded the Clipper program 47 years ago, and last week celebrated his 500th win on the mat.

In his career, Gordon has guided Cumberland to four State Championships and three Dual Meet titles.

Retired from the school system since 2010, Gordon hopes to lead the Clippers for another three seasons which will coincide with his grand-daughter’s graduation from the high school.
