Former Scottdale Athlete Gives Great Sportsmanship Exhibition o OUver Gordon Refused to Take Advantage of Unfortunate Floor Team. ACTS RESULTS IN HIS DEFEAT Oliver (Jordon, a former resident of Scottdale and lxwer Tyrone township and one time lef'. end on tho Blae and White football team and a ''class" basketball performer, now coach ot Avalon High School in the Pittsburg district, displayed a remarkaole spirit of sportsmanship which caused Ralph S. Davis, sports tditor of tbe Pitteburg Press to hetip a world of praise ou him. Oliver, who p'ayed ou the Millers eleven about 1921 and 1922, Is a son ot Mr. and Mra William Gordon of flower Tyrone township, The family formerly resided at Scottdale. Tho exce-rpt 1'rom the Pltteburg Press follows: "Ever so oCten one run« across an incident which loleters his teith In human nature, aad makes him admit , that, a f t e r all, tlere iti a lot of gcxyi *'ln this old world--a lot of fellows who are real sporlsmj-n, in the finest and truest sense, of '.be word. "The other n i g h t the Avalon and Sewickley High school basketball ·'.earns were playii g an important game in Section r l of t h e Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League. "The game was on Avalon'e floor, and the hall was crowded with parti- nne of the contestants. Rivalry'.'' 5ay, if you've novor lived in one of! ::hose suburban towns, you don't know what rivalry la! "Tho contest w-nt along the regulation length ot title, and at the finteh 'he score wae tie! Tho roferee. Max /lannuni, ordered an extra period, u c - j iXrding to the rules. j "At its troncluej-m the score wne etill ( fi«Hl. A aecoiid perkxi was started. Tho txy» of bot i tea»n« were well- ;dgh exhausted. I'hey ha! been jnc w i t h everything th«y and their reeerve strength wae waning. "Sewickley had had a couple of their players removed from the game on personal loula. Its tubstitutee had all been used up. Fint lly, one of the Sewickley boys was hurt, and had to be helped to the beis ;h. "Coach Winney w is up egainet it. Ho hi»d only four available players. He informed the ref( ree of hie plight, and was told he would either have to forfeit or continue with four men--a tremendous had leap. " 'We'll go sn will four men,' Winney decided. The pi-iy was resumed, with the count still tied. "Down on one end of Avalon bench sat Coach Oliver Gordon. It looked like A lucky break ior his team, for four men are hardly \blo to cope with five. But Gordon is More then a mere athletic instructor. 3 (e's u gentleman, who believes in the true eportstnaE'e code of R square de» I. "Running up to the middle of the court, (tordon waved hie hand at the re-ferao. Hannum we it over to confer with him. " 'le there anything in the rules,' he inquired, 'which would prevent me from taking one of my men out to even this thing wpV I don't want to beat a four-man team I'd rather take a licking myself.' " 'There's nothing In the rules to prevent your taking ;i men out,' said H a n n u m . "Gordon waved one of his guards to the bench. The A\ alon spectatore wore etunned for a moment. Why, Gordon must he era/.'! What did he ineai* *? such a thini--juot when fato had handed him a l u ky break. Why, it was unheard of!! The very idea! "Shouts ot protHBt from tho partisans rout the air. 'Lei. them Uike their beating.' yelled man} in unison. 'H itn't your fault they' . - e only got four mou/ "But Gordon was fit m--be'« a sporie- uuin. "The l.wo teams w ant at It again, hummer and tongS, f - u r men against! four.

They won by the sscore of 33 to 31. "'Wiint a rotten shame,' said some '»£ the Avalon onlookers. "Wha; a glorious victory for Coach Gordon, eay I. "He has implanted in the heerte and minds of the Avalon haaketeere and their student followers a mightier lesson than could have been learned from any victory marked up In the score book. "He has taught his boys there ie such a thing as a equaro deal, u sense of the oternal fitness of thiugs. He has proved that there is sucli a thing ae ethic:) in sport. " 'It was the finest Bit of sportsmanship I e v e r saw,' remarked the Sewickley coach, aa he grasped hie rival's band ami wrung it. "I don't known Olivor Gordon, out I like him j u s t the same. I can't conceive of him drilling a bunch oi! boys in 'dirty' play. But I have known coaches who did. "I know n certain coach who handled a High school football team, which inflicted more injuries on opponents than was neceseary. He taught them to win by hook or crook, to twist an ankle, or ste-p on a facs, or kick in u few ribs, or anything else of the sort, if it could he done without tho officials seeing it. "'Let them protect themselves if they don't want to get hurt,' wae hie Klogan. "1 havi3 a feeling that Oliver Gordon doesn't -io t h i n g s that way.
