St. Petersburg High School plans to retire the basketball jersey of Army Spc. Brittany Gordon, who was killed while serving in Afghanistan, on Dec. 3.

The ceremony to retire Gordon’s No. 33 will come during St. Petersburg’s girls basketball game against Seminole High, said Stephanie Swenson, a coach at the school.

Gordon, 24, was the daughter of St. Petersburg Assistant Police Chief Cedric Gordon and his former wife, Brenda Gordon.

She graduated in 2006 and was captain of the Green Devils’ girls basketball team and served as a manager for the boys team.
