Bradley Ector out of McIntosh High School had a strong showing his junior year, where he was the focal point of their offensive attack. The 2018 running back has legit speed, and can stride out and run away from almost every defender in the state of Georgia.
This offseason has been hectic, including going to camps at Mercer, West Georgia, LaGrange, and Georgia State. “The offseason was good,” Ector said. “I really didn’t get to rest, because I run track, but it did give me time to get my mind off last season. I also trained with IdareU in Atlanta and competed in several local camps.”
Proof to his blazing speed, Ector ran a 10.9 100M last spring in track and field. Last season, the speedy running back ran around defenses for big gashing plays and was the main player that opponents’ defensive coordinators had to gameplan for.
During the offseason he improved on a handful of attributes that he believes will give him the edge. “I’ve improved my game by working on my footwork, speed, pass blocking, and becoming more of a team leader and player.”
The 5’10” 185 pound running back has improved his weight lifting numbers from last fall, and we expect him to have a big season running for over 1000 yards. Ector shares that same sentiment, to go along with several more goals on his senior bucket list. “My goals for this fall is to rush for over 1000 yards, have a winning season and make it to the playoffs, to go along with beating Starr’s Mill,” Ector said emphatically.
Ector is a big sleeper in the state of Georgia and is only being recruited by a handful of local colleges. His football speed is a major game changer, and he could even have an impact as a kick returner at the college level. This fall he plans to visit games at West Georgia, Mercer, Georgia State, Kennesaw State, and Reinhardt.
