ACKERMAN â€“ Jamarcus Bradley had just one number in mind.Â
That was 400. The Choctaw County quarterback's career high in total offense in a single game was 375 entering Friday night's matchup against Union. He wanted to cross the 400-yard threshold.
He did that and more.
MABEN - Brandon Townsend single handedly was the difference maker on Friday night with four touchdowns.
