Sea Gulls flying high thanks to Bradman

Sophomore powers Salisbury's run to NCAA Division III title game

"That's one of the things that people don't realize about great players. Sometimes the best game they play is the game where they don't get any points," he said. "Because Sam draws so much attention, he gives everybody else another step or two, and when you give a solid player a step or two, all of a sudden he becomes a very good player. People put so much attention on him and they slide to him even when he's got the pole. That definitely opens some things up for our other players."

Bradman said he won't take unnecessary or low-percentage shots for the chance to increase his personal statistics. And with teammates like sophomore attackman Matt Cannone (51 goals and 33 assists), Von Kamecke (40, 30) and senior attackman Jake DeLillo (42, 21), Bradman said the offensive burden is not limited to him.

"I have a great group of guys to lift me up and play alongside with," he said. "It's not really much pressure because if I don't have a good game, I know they're going to have a good game. So it's nice to know that you have that kind of backup going into every game."
