Mr. Basketball Finalist

Brad Redford is from my home town Frankenmuth Eagles! He even wears the same number 12 that I wore as an Eagle, which has obviously contributed to his success, although my shorts were much shorter and tighter. The wonder kid from the Muth got it done again last night with an 80-75 OVERTIME victory against a very good Belding team. He missed a shot to win it at the buzzer in regulation but nailed the opening 3-pointer in OT and the Eagles never trailed after that. Mr. Redford and the Eagles move on to play Hemlock in the regional finals, a team that Brad destroyed in their first meeting, scoring a state of Michigan record 27 points in the FIRST QUARTER! The video below is only through his first 15 games. Since then he set a State record for most consecutive free throws made at 102, (second best ever in the country), he has a chance at the national record for best FT% in a season, and he passed Glen Rice and Magic Johnson on the career points total which is now at 2051 I believe. This kid can flat out shoot! Enjoy!

That little dude is automatic. Pullin' up and hittin' threes from 25 feet. Wow! He gets my vote. They're not booing, they're chanting "Muuuuuuuth!"
