Graham (Bluefield, VA) star tailback Ahmad Bradshaw has gone over 2,000 yards rushing for the season, marking the second time in as many years he has accomplished the feat.
A sterling performance in Graham’s final regular season game victory over Carroll County (where Ahmad rushed for four touchdowns, of 66, 63, 72, and 49 yards) moved Bradshaw to 2,221 yards on the year. He scored 29 touchdowns.
“It was a good season,” said Bradshaw. “We are starting to come together as a team. I had a good game against Carroll County and yesterday had a good game against Martinsville [in the first round of the playoffs].”
Graham defeated Martinsville by a score of 49-10. Bradshaw led the way with 202 yards and four touchdowns on 23 carries. Next up is a meeting with Grundy, who the G-Men defeated 42-7 earlier this year.

“I’m still open,” said Bradshaw, who has made visits to Virginia Tech and Tennessee already. “Everything’s still the same. I’m trying to narrow things down, but it’s tough.”
