IHS Football Tackles New Season

Coach Gordon and players at a recent practice.

When the Ithaca High School Varsity football team lined up for the kickoff to start the 2014 season, second year head coach Kelly Gordon watched with high hopes of a winning campaign. To accomplish that, he will have to continue rebuilding the 1-8 team he inherited last year. That team finished the season without a victory. “Despite that record a lot of progress was made.” Gordon says. “We put down the foundation for the program going forward. I have a tight knit group that’s very resilient and will never quit. They may be young but they have tons of talent and potential.”

To forge a winning team Gordon has re-designed the team’s game strategy to take advantage of highly motivated players that may be small in size, but are big on speed. “I decided to open up the offense and spread it out to better suit the faster, quicker players we have,” he says. “And we’ll have more of an attacking style of defense that will use a scheme to get our best playmakers on the field.”

As for the mental aspects of the game, Coach Gordon re-enforces this message to his players: “Go into every game expecting to win. Complete every game from start to finish. Play with class to represent Ithaca.”

Gordon also has a message for Ithaca High School staff, students and families: “Come and support your football team and be LOUD at every game!”
