JAMESTOWN -- The postseason is becoming a familiar place for Greeneview. The Rams seek a third straight playoff appearance in 2016 after never having made the playoffs prior to 2014.Top 22 selection Ethan Bradds is looking to lead Greeneview to the next milestone: getting past Week 12.The senior tight end and linebacker is committed to play at Eastern Kentucky next season.Bradds has been a starter since midway through his freshman year. He comes from a strong line of successful athletes. His grandfather played basketball at Ohio State and his brother is entering his senior season at Belmont.But football is his calling and family and his community are his motivators."My brother's competitive edge, he's always pushing me with all his accolades it kind of pushes me to be good," Bradds said. "I think it means something more [playing in a small town] because we all grew up together and we see each other in school. In this town, this is what they want. On Friday nights the whole town comes.""He's humble, I mean don't get me wrong, but he's a guy that thinks and wants to be that difference maker," Greeneview head coach Neal Kasner said. "He wants that pressure upon himself. He wants to take those things. I think sometimes some guys just rest on their laurels, but Ethan's trying to be that guy."Greeneview opens the season Friday at CHCA.
