Gators prepare to take down top player in the state


Heading into Friday’s matchup against the Jonesboro-Hodge Tigers (7-8), the Lakeview Gators sit #3 in the Class 2A rankings and have a record of 15-7 on the year. With district play coming next week, the Gators will push hard to win each of these las

Standing between them and a state title is 6 foot, 5 inch guard LaDamien Bradford. Bradford is ranked the #4 player in his class and has signed with Texas A&M. Bradford is the same height as the biggest Gator and his length gives him an advantage over every defender that matches up against him.

Despite the publicity surrounding this 3-star recruit, he does not strike fear in the Gator backcourt. The senior duo of #2 Nate Braden and #14 Timothy Washington plan to show that they deserve the state rankings and the big offers.

The chip on these seniors shoulders will push them to outshine Bradford and lead the Gators past the Tigers. Take the short trip to Jonesboro-Hodge and come out to support the Gators.
