Rodney Bradley likes the WR screen

HA Note: “During team drills yesterday, Bradley, aligned to the left, broke inside, caught a screen pass from Greg Alexander, juked safety Spencer Smith and sprinted for a long gain.”

About his long gain yesterday on a WR screen, Bradley said:
“It was my first time running it. I like it.” (HA)

“I’m getting used to the offense more and more every day. We just put in that screen today, I liked that.” (HSB)

HA Note: “The inside screen was a pet play between quarterback Colt Brennan and wideout Jason Rivers in 2006 and 2007. The route causes chaos for defenses set in a two-deep zone, and opens the way for slotbacks or running backs to curl into the flats. Most important, it gives a big wideout, like Rivers or Bradley, a running start.”

About Bradley’s effectiveness with the WR screen, Greg Alexander said:
“You saw what he did to Spencer. If you get him the ball in space, he’s going to make some things happen. He’s going to be fun.” (HA)

Bradley (who can run the 40 in 4.4 seconds) said that the:
“offense will allow me the chance to use a lot of my talent.” (HA)

HA Note: “Now Bradley, who rotates with Joe Avery, is getting used to the workload. This spring, UH is using a platoon system, in which a second offensive unit sprints onto the field when the first team finishes a play. UH head coach Greg McMackin said the constant rotations double the number of plays the Warriors can run in team drills.”

After being in a run-oriented offense at his JC, Bradley said that UH throws:
“five times more in practices. (At Navarro) it was a lot of blocking.” (HA)A

HSB Note: “Having Navarro teammate Melvin Hopkins on the roster has helped Bradley get comfortable in Hawaii. They are among among five JC transfers who enrolled at UH for the spring semester, giving them a head start on making the transition to Division I.”

About enrolling in the spring to get a head start on adjusting to D-IA football, Bradley said:
“It’s a good opportunity to come in now because I get to pick up the offense a lot faster and I have more time to do it because this is a pretty hard offense. At first it was a little frustrating because this stuff is so different from what we ran in junior college. Every day it’s getting a lot better.” (HSB)
