February 6, 2012

Steve Gordon has been coaching Cumberland High’s wrestling program since time began. Well, not quite. Just since he got the program started back in 1969. That’s 43 years, if you’re counting.

Gordon learned a lot from the Coventry High School wrestling program, a dynasty that produced 17 straight state championship teams between 1982-98.
