Quad-Cities Teen Trey Gordon Headed To Food Network’s Kids’ Baking Championship
A Davenport teenager is baking up something really special for his holiday break this year — 13-year-old Trey Gordon will be a contestant on the 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!
