������ inside michigan athletics ������ Student-Athlete Of The Month Redshirt Sophomore Linebacker Cameron Gordon Cam Gordon was a Freshman All-American second-team selection in 2010, but he and his family relished another honor; Gordon earned Academic All-Big Ten recognition. Enrolled in the College of Literature, Science and Arts, with a concentration in sociology, Gordon has achieved success on the football field and in the classroom through hard work and dedication. ���You really just have to stay on top of everything and make sure that not a single day goes by where you���re not accomplishing an assignment,��� he said. ���Football is time consuming, but I promised myself I���d get good grades when I came to school and I���m doing my best to keep that promise.��� Gordon doesn���t know if football will last beyond college, and he���s working to make sure he can take care of himself, and others, whether he plays in the NFL or not. ���You have to have an education when football is over,��� he said, noting he���d like to give back to his community. ���I���d like to coach little league football, or high school football. I just want to go into the inner city and make a difference.��� ��� Michael Spath Gordon earned Academic All-Big Ten recognition in 2010. Photo by Per Kjeldsen GIVING BACK NEVER GAVE YOU SO MUCH.
