Gordon, the Bay area's only female killed in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, played basketball at St. Pete High.

The school will honor her at halftime.

Gordon was killed in October. It was her first deployment.

She wore the number 33. Her jersey will be framed and hung in the gym in her memory.
