West Frankfort Basketball Adjusting in First Season Under Former Redbird’s Leadership

WEST FRANKFORT — The West Frankfort Redbirds brought an alum home to take over the boys basketball program after the departure of Evan Wyllie last year. Pete Gordon has come back to FCHS after coaching the Thompsonville Tigers to one of their best seasons in school history last year.

Gordon says the results so far haven’t been what he or the guys have wanted, but they are still adjusting to each other.

The Redbirds travel to Murphysboro tonight to take on an 11-4 Red Devil team that is riding a three-game win streak. You can hear tonight’s game on our sister station, 95.5 The Fan or online at 955thefan.com.
