Five Bradford Academy seniors to play college football

Bradford Academy is proud to announce five seniors will play college football this upcoming fall. The football team went to playoffs for the first time in school history and made it to the District Championship game. It was an exhilarating season for the team, filled with excitement and great accolades for the program.

Coach Ki’erre Gaut says of the season, “This was an awesome year, but it was capped off most importantly by these young men receiving scholarships to college. It is a proud moment for Bradford, for our students and our program.”
