Bradshaw had an extremely tough schedule last year with 9 of their opponents being playoff teams, they went 3-7 and four of those losses were by 7 points or less. They return 26 lettermen and 12 starters from that squad including all region selections Matt Buehler (OL), Ben Pigg (DB/P) and Justin Kilduff (WR).
Offensively they return a solid core group of offensive linemen and it looks like Pigg will also be asked to carry the football more this year to replace the departed Levi Moore. Pigg was the team's second leading rusher last year as well as being an all region DB and P.
On D they must replace their five leading tacklers and some tough d-linemen.
The schedule is much more manageable and I think the Bears have the best shot at challenging my favorite Mingus for the region title.
