“I want to thank my teammates, the entire Utica City FC organization, and the city of Utica for believing in me,” he said. “I am truly happy here and excited to see where the rest of the season takes us.”

Coach Hewerton Moreira added, “Gordy has been outstanding to start the season. He is one of the leaders in our locker room and on the field, is constantly striving to be better, and has an innate ability to find the back of the net. Gordy is very deserving of being named as Player of the Week and we are excited for him to be recognized for his hard work.”
