A GATHERING OF FORMER Bethune High School football and basketball players, coaches and volunteer coaches pose for a group photo along with Doby Gordon (second from right) at last months reception at the Bethune Community Center.
On Saturday April 21, nearly 200 people converged inside the Bethune Community Center to show their respect and appreciation to a man who had a big impact on their lives while playing sports at Bethune High School. Guests came from throughout the United States and Germany, far and near, to honor Doby Gordon and to recall what it was like to play sports for the legendary Wildcat and Lady Wildcat coach. Because of the one year long planning and preparation led by Steven Stokes, BHS class of 1978, and now, a Special Agent with the FBI, assisted by Barry McGougan, Robbie Brown, Mark McCarty and Doris McGougan the event was a big success.
