Skinny: Bradshaw is one of the most explosive players in the Atlantic area. He is a real workhorse on the field and can break a game open at any moment. Not a play goes off when this young man isn’t on the field.
“He does everything for our team really,” says head coach Glynn Carlock. “He runs, catches, returns kicks, and even plays some safety for us. He is an all-around great player.”
Bradshaw’s favorite team growing up was Florida State, and the Seminoles are still one of his favorites at this time.
“My favorites are Florida State and Virginia,” he said. “I just love Florida State’s football program overall. Virginia has a real good program too, and they are close to home. If I chose Florida State though I don’t think I will have any problems being that far from home.”
Bradshaw knows what he is looking for when deciding on a school.
“What I’m looking for is a great atmosphere, good graduation rate and just overall support of the football team.”
Bradshaw does not have any offers at this time. He also plans to attend the Nike camp at Virginia Tech.
