Bradley Central Excited About Their Offensive Potential


Only time will tell, but Bradley Central’s offense could be special this season.
Said head coach Damon Floyd:”So offensively we feel like we are ahead of where we have been most of the time at this point in the season. It’s exciting because we’ve got a lot of play-makers and guys that can do some special things.”
The Bears return a 1,000 yard rusher in Ricky McCleary, and they have a transfer quarterback in Javin Burke who really excites Coach Floyd.
Said Floyd:”Javin has got all of the tools. He’s a very smart kid. He’s athletic. He’s a dual-threat. He can run it and throw it, so we’re really excited to have him, and he’s a leader.”
Said Burke:”I’m excited a lot. Like I said, they put a lot of faith in me. We’re just going to run around and have a lot of fun this year.”
Burke should have fun throwing it.
The Bears have excellent receivers led by 6’4 target Tray Currry.
He’s listed as one of the state’s top ten recruits by for 2021.
Reporter:”Do you see teams trying to figure out what to do about you?”
Said Curry:”I see a lot of teams do that. They switch up. They go with a small guy first, and then they go with a big guy later in the game to try to stop me.”
If the offense jells, the Bears should be able to improve on last year’s 7-4 record.
Said Floyd:”We got put out in the first round last year. That’s not our goal. Our goal is to get in the playoffs and make a run. If we want to do that, it needs to start now. We’ve got to be consistent in every aspect of the game.”

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at
