#34: Trevon Bradford - Wide Receiver
A lot will be made of the quarterback competition that is set to take place the next few weeks. Will the JUCO gunslinger Jake Luton get the nod? Can Marcus McMaryion keep the momentum he gained with back to back wins over Arizona and Oregon last year? Or will a healthy Darrel Garretson take the job once again? Whoever ends up getting the ball in a new look offense they will have plenty of weapons to stretch the field with. One of the more underrated weapons may be Oregon City’s own Trevon Bradford.
The 3 star wide receiver, who switched civil war allegiances when he signed his letter of intent to play for Gary Andersen’s Beavers, was one of several true freshman to see the field last year, checking in with 5 catches for 60 yards and a touchdown as well as seeing time as a return man. Bradford saw most his time late in the season when Seth Collins was sidelined by illness, with his biggest game coming in a lopsided win over Arizona where Bradford racked up 51 receiving yards and his first career touchdown.
Starting this week, Bradford will battle with a host of talented receivers for a starting role in 2017. Even if he isn’t listed as one of the #1 receivers expect Bradford to contribute a lot to an offense that will try to stretch the field more than previous years of the Gary Andersen era. Bradford should also see plenty of time as a return man and potentially as a fly sweep specialist taking over for current San Francisco 49er Victor Bolden.
What else can we ask of Trevon? Well maybe he can help recruit another 3 star kid from Oregon City, Trevon’s younger brother, defensive back Teron Bradford.
