"As a freshman it felt real good, first time playing college football, just the crowd being out there being able to perform it front of the crowds of Bozeman," said senior cornerback Sean Gords.
Three years ago, Sean Gords started for the cats at cornerback as a true freshman. But after he tore his misniscus, 80 percent of it was taken out. And his sophomore and junior seasons didn't go as planned.
"It was tough a lot of mental battles with myself like will I be able to get over this knee injury and just get over what's going on with me a lot of talk with my coaches a lot of talk with my parents and a lot of rehab," said Gords.
Fellow senior, safety Steven Bethley realizes the determination that gords went thru to become healthy entering his senior year.
"He's kept that same mentality of being a hard worker and never giving up he battled some injuries his sophomore season and didn't play quite the way he would have his junior season he just stayed strong," said senior safety Steven Bethley.
Gords is back as a starter at corner, and everyone thinks this is his year.
"Some corners are not very physical they're just fast but Sean combines physical play with good athleticism so he has the tools to have a great year," said Head Coach Rob Ash.
"He doesn't shy down from anybody he battles out here he doesn't shy away he'll press John and press Tanner even though he's a big body," said Bethley.
"My mindset is I did it freshman year so I can do it now," said Gords.
