As a junior, Chris Bradley was the quarterback for a Modesto High football team that liked to move the ball with a punishing ground game.

The Panthers had their moments and finished the season on a strong note, winning two of four Modesto Metro Conference games.

Bradley had his moments as well, completing 84 of 170 passes for 1,098 yards and 10 touchdowns. His highlights included a 255-yard, two-touchdown performance in a loss to Turlock and a 224-yard, two-touchdown game in a win against MMC co-champion Johansen.

The leash appears to have been loosened this season.

"The team's looking a lot different this year," Bradley said. "A lot of our big guys graduated. But we've got a lot of skill guys coming back."
