Bradford steps up to take helm of Green Oaks football program


Defensive coordinator James Bradford Jr. has been promoted to head coach of the Green Oaks High School football program.

Bradford has been the Giants’ DC for the past two seasons under Chadwick Lewis, who departed the head coaching post at the end of the school year.

Bradford has previously coached at Byrd and Huntington.

The announcement came through Twitter on Friday.

“Thankful for the opportunity and looking forward to leading the Giants’ program,” tweeted Bradford.

Green Oaks has won just three games, two by forfeit, in the past two seasons. The Giants scored a satisfying 28-6 win over rival Booker T. Washington in the annual “Soul Bowl” contest last September.
