District 13-3A Division II: Week 9 Report

District 13-3A Division II: Week 8 Report

Johnson City 48, Brady 23 — The Bulldogs fell behind the Eagles early and never recovered in dropping to 1-6 on the season and 0-2 in 13-3A DII play.

Brady, which allowed 360 yards and five touchdowns rushing, trailed 21-7 at halftime and saw that deficit reach 41-7 early in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs scored two touchdowns in the final seven minutes, but the outcome of the game was decided by then.

The loss to Johnson City, Brady’s fifth in a row, puts some serious pressure on coach Shay Easterwood’s Bulldogs in the final three weeks. They’ll need to win two of their last three against Blanco, Comfort and and Sonora to earn one of the four playoff spots out of this district.

District 13-3A Division II: Week 7 Report

Ingram Moore 48, Brady 44 — Sophomore quarterback Timmothy Leatherman was too much for the Bulldogs on Friday, rushing for 173 yards and five touchdowns and passing for 110 yards and another score to lift the Warriors to thrilling win over Brady.

Coach Shay Easterwood’s squad led 20-18 at halftime of this hyper-competitive matchup, but Moore (5-1, 1-0) took the lead with a 16-8 third quarter and held off the Bulldogs in the fourth.

Now 1-5 overall and 0-1 in 13-3A DII play, Brady will look to snap a four-game losing streak and bull its way into the playoff picture when it hosts Johnson City (1-5, 0-1) on Friday.

District 13-3A Division II: Week 1 Report

Shay Easterwood

Ballinger 20, Brady 19 (OT) — The Bulldogs just missed earning their first win of the Shay Easterwood era Friday, but it wasn’t for a lack of effort or confidence. In fact, after answering Ballinger’s touchdown in overtime following four quarters that had yielded a 13-all stalemate, Brady elected to go for two and the win.

The Bulldogs didn’t end up converting — Kelton Bernard was tackled by Ballinger’s Cooper Bean to end the game — but the effort against what is widely expected to be an improved Ballinger squad would seem to validate Easterwood‘s talk of improvement over the offseason.

Brady, which got 65 yards from  Ryan Decker and 61 from Bernard on its way to a 228-yard rushing day, couldn’t snap its now 15-game losing skid in Week 1. But the Bulldogs will get another chance this week at Haskell, and any team that sleeps on Easterwood’s squad is likely to end up regretting it.

Spring sport success has Brady Bulldogs feeling confident

A young Brady Bulldogs squad took its lumps during Shay Easterwood’s first season as a head coach, enduring an 0-10 campaign that saw it outscored 412-169.

But Easterwood was anything but discouraged by the end of his first year back at his alma mater.

Not only did his team continue to battle throughout a difficult season, but many of those same players went on lead Brady’s other athletic programs to tremendous success. And now in Year 2 with the bulk of last year’s roster back, Easterwood is confident that experience in other arenas will pay dividends on the football field this fall.

Brady Bulldogs poised for big step forward in 2018

The Brady football team took its lumps during Shay Easterwood’s first season as a head coach, enduring an 0-10 campaign that saw them outscored 412-169. But with 18 of 24 lettermen back from that squad, including nine starters on both sides of the ball, things are looking up for the Bulldogs.

With 10 freshmen and 10 sophomores on the 2017 roster, Brady will still be young this fall. But Easterwood, a 1997 Brady graduate, believes the Bulldogs will field a significantly better product in Year 2.
