14 2018 PHOTOS OF THE YEAR JANUARY 9-15, 2019 | THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER BREEZE PHOTO BY ROBERT EMERSON I don't get to cover many sports-related assign- ments at The Breeze, so when I saw this one, I admit I was a little nervous. In February, Cumberland High School wrestling coach Steve Gordon was retiring after 50 years and this was his final match. Ever. For Coach Gordon though, despite the hoopla and the speeches, this was just another wres- tling match. Due to the fact that I hadn't covered wrestling in about 30 years, I had no idea what was going to happen or what to expect. I made a bunch of mediocre photos right up until the time the speeches concluded and the match was about the begin. That's when I noticed the team gravitat- ing toward the coach and then with his outstretched arm, the team came together for one final pre- match cheer. I like the way the team's hands all came together and the expression on the coach's face that said let's just get on with it.
