SPLENDORA, Texas — The first time this year that coaches at Splendora (Texas) High School put a stopwatch on 2015 running back Jay Bradford, head coach Brad Milam was in disbelief.
It was February, and the coaches were doing offseason testing like many programs do. Included in those tests is the 40-yard dash. When Bradford exploded for a hand-timed 4.38 seconds, Milam refused to believe it was true. So he had Bradford run in another line and have another coach time him.
Again, it was in the 4.3-second range.
