Cameron Bradford, star Blackhawks attackman on Team Apache and rising junior at Bishop McGuiness High School, was named today as the the high school Blackhawk of the Year.
In addition to exemplifying the Blackhawk spirit with his unselfish play and work ethic, Cameron led the summer team with 34 goals and 14 assists in game competition this summer. He also led all Blackhawk attackmen in ground balls.
Cameron, known by Blackhawk oldtimers as “Rudy,” began with the Blackhawks as a rising 9th grader in our first summer. He was known for his “junebug” moves from “x” for the Blackhawks’ inaugural travel team, usually against defenders twice his size.
Bradford was named to the high school “Black” team last summer and scored 6 goals and had 4 assists. Cameron is known as a tireless and savvy offensive wizard around the cage, but also brings a riding tenacity to the Blackhawks. Both this summer and last, he was always willing to take a middie shift or two when needed. With the help of his outstanding teammates this summer, Cameron had a breakout offensive year for the Blackhawks.
In recognition of this honor, the Triad Black Hawk Fund has donated $500 to the boys lacrosse program at Bishop McGuinness High School.
