Gordon was still taken aback almost an hour after accepting the award.
"I was extremely surprised," he said. "I've been coming to this event for a long time and seen the legends and pioneers of this sport get that award and I don't look at myself that way. Plus it was a surprise, and being recognized by your peers for your contributions gets me emotional. It hasn't even sunk in yet, it's huge and I'm still in shock."
