Bradford graduate Melvin Gordon had a career day for the San Diego Chargers in their 43-35 win at Tennessee on Sunday.
The second-year running back out of Wisconsin ran for a career-best 196 yards and scored a touchdown and caught four passes for 65 yards as he continued to establish himself as one of the most dangerous players in the NFL.
The Associated Press captured a lot of Gordon’s big day in pictures.
When the 2016 All-Southeast Conference football team was announced on Monday, Kenosha County was well-represented.
Bradford received 16 total first-team, second-team and honorable mention selections — just one behind SEC champion Franklin’s 17 for second-most in the conference — Indian Trail totaled 11 and Tremper racked up nine.
OAK CREEK — The Bradford football team has had to fight its way out of the corner so many times this year, there was no reason to think the Red Devils would go quietly trailing 14-0 at halftime with their backup quarterback in a road playoff game on Friday night.
In a game that featured 94 points and 967 yards of total offense, it’s easy to ignore that an old-fashioned defensive stand was a key moment in Bradford’s 60-34 Southeast Conference win over Tremper at Mary D. Bradford Stadium on Friday night.
St. Joseph’s chance to win its first conference championship since 2005, when it was a member of the now-defunct Lakeshore Conference, is all but over following the Lancers’ 24-13 loss to Racine St. Catherine’s on Friday night at Ameche Field on Friday night.
While St. Catherine’s (6-2, 5-1 MCC) clinched at least a share of the Metro Classic Conference title with the win, St. Joseph (5-3 overall) dropped into a three-way tie for second in the eight-team league at 4-2 with Greendale Martin Luther (6-2 overall) and Racine Lutheran (5-3 overall).
