Bradford wins athlete of the week

Posted:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Christian Bradford has been a consistent player for the Kendrick Cherokees all season long.

But Bradford took a step forward with a whopping 50 points in Friday's 107-71 win over Temple. For that effort, he is the latest WRBL Athlete of the Week.

"I just try to do what I can for us to win the game," Bradford said. "Sometimes it might be scoring 50 points, sometimes it might be to get 10 rebounds, sometimes it might be to stop the other player on the other team from scoring. Just, whatever it is that night, that's what I try to focus on."

Bradford has been a leader all season long, averaging 24 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and five steals a game. Off the court, he's a leader as well.

"He's already passed the ACT test, so he's in the process of trying to get to the next level," said Kendrick head coach Collins Jones. "I think wherever he goes, he'll be an asset to the program."

Bradford and the Cherokees clinched a spot in the state tournament Thursday night with a 74-61 win over Bowdon in the 5-AA region tournament.
