Christ Presberterian Academy’s Craig Bradshaw has committed to Belmont University to play basketball.
Bradshaw committed prior to starting his senior year at CPA.
The 6-foot-2 guard made the decision prior to his senior year. He averaged 20 points, five rebounds, and a team-high five assists per game as a junior in 2010-11. He helped the Lions to a 29-5 record and the district championship.
"I think this is a great fit for Craig,” CPA coach Drew Maddux said. "He gets the chance to play for a great coach in Rick Byrd and will also be a part of Belmont's entry into the OVC and their history of NCAA Tournament tradition.”
• BGA names hall inductees: Brandon Wood is one of five people named to the Battleground Academy Sports Hall of Fame.
Wood led BGA to the 1993 State Class A basketball championship. He was named the tournament MVP that year.
A four-year starter, Wood was the leading scorer for that title team and finished with 1,679 career points.
Wood is currently the head girl's basketball coach at Nashville Christian School.
Also selected for induction were Lisa Jewell (1990 graduate, soccer and basketball), Billy Isaacs (1949, football and baseball), 'Big' Albert Jordan, Jr. (1924, football) and Will Anderson (football, 1899, and track, 1899).
The five will be honored during BGA's home game Sept 30, then a luncheon Oct. 1 at BGA.
