It is great to have a guy like Brady on our team. I am so thankful that he chose to come and be a part of what we are doing here at Union. Whether he knows it or not, he plays and will continue to play a huge role on our team. Brady is a young man of high character and that carries over onto how he practices and plays each day. In everything he does, we see great effort. He picks up on everything we teach the first time through…a true coach’s son. He is getting better every day and I am excited to see how he progresses over the next four years!
