WATERLOO, ON – Men’s football running back Levondre Gordon has been announced as this week’s Laurier Hawk Shop Athlete of the Week for the week ending August, 26, 2018.
Gordon, originally from Mississauga, Ont., had a strong start to the season for the Golden Hawks as they ran away from the Ottawa Gee-Gees to earn a 39-21 victory on Sunday at University Stadium. The fourth year sociology major ran for 109 yards on 14 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns, one to open the scoring just three minutes in and another late in the first half. His performance gives him 16 career rushing touchdowns for the purple and gold, good for a tie for fifth all-time at Laurier.
This marks the second time in his career that Gordon has been named the Male Athlete of the Week.
