Josh Gordy: Coming Home!

Josh Gordy, number 19, is an outstanding cornerback for the Central Michigan Chippewas. After a redshirt year in 2005, the junior from Warthen, Georgia has been a two year starter for Central Michigan. A graduate of Washington County High School in Sandersville, Georgia, Gordy grew up less than 80 miles from the campus of the University of Georgia. On September 6, Gordy and the Chippewas invade Athens to take on the highly touted Bulldogs. What a great opportunity for a young man from Georgia to come back home and play in one of college football's greatest venues, "Between the Hedges", in front of so many family and friends. Josh has worked had and earned this occasion on his own. He already has an NFL draft profile, and has caught the attention of many knowledgeable football gurus with his knack for making the big play. Good luck to Josh and CMU on their trip into Sanford Stadium, but I must confess I hope they leave the "Classic City" facing a long trip home after suffering a defeat at the hands of the Dawgs.
