If you tune in to the Food Network TONIGHT, you might see a familiar face!

Quad-Cities teenager Trey Gordon will be competing at 8 p.m., as the Davenport 13-year-old will be a contestant on the Food Network’s Kids’ Baking Championship!

Trey Gordon makes his announcement about being on Food Network’s Kids Baking Championship.

Trey shared the awesome news on his Facebook page, saying, “I have a huge announcement! I am so excited I’m able to tell you guys this.  I am going to be on Kids Baking Championship, season nine, with Food Network. Tune in on December 28 for a two-episode premiere!”

Even at a young age, Trey has had a distinguished career in the arts and other pursuits.

He’s been on stage as an actor at Circa ’21, Davenport Junior Theater and various other local theaters and has been a dancer with Ballet Quad Cities, playing the prince in “The Nutcracker” in 2019.

He’s also engaged in a number of local charitable events for his schools, including arts events for his former school Rock Island Math and Science and for his current school, Creative Arts Academy.

On a personal note, I coached Trey in soccer in 2012 (as part of the 7-0 championship-winning Rock Island Ice Dragons! lol) and he was a good friend of my son, Jackson. He’s also a heck of a soccer player!

Trey has always been a great kid, and his talent is taking him to some terrific places. We wish him the best of luck on the competition and hope he has a fun time on Food Network!
