There’s only 67 days until the Texas Tech Red Raiders take on the Montana State Bobcats, which means today we will stay with the offensive line position group and highlight a redshirt freshman who will be key to the offensive line depth, Troy Bradshaw.
Bradshaw is a 6-6 275 pound offensive lineman from Mineral Wells, Texas. A part of the 2018 recruiting class, Bradshaw was rated a two-star prospect according to Rivals, but a three-star prospect according to 247Sports coming out of Mineral Wells High School and chose Texas Tech over other offers from Louisiana-Monroe, Texas State, Tulane and Tulsa.
After battling a significant health scare, Bradshaw was hospitalized for eight days his senior year and missed six weeks of workouts and preseason practice, Bradshaw joined his high school team, Mineral Wells, in week two and wound up first-team all-District 5-4A Division I. He enrolled at Texas Tech during the spring semester and contributed to the scout team in the fall of 2018.
Troy’s father, Mitch, was a Texas Tech cheerleader and spent some time as the Roof Raider, who was a black-clad figure who waved the offense and defense flags from atop the old Lettermen’s Lounge building at the North end of the stadium. Troy has reportedly always dreamed of having the opportunity to play for Texas Tech, and we are glad to have the opportunity to cheer him and the Red Raiders for a successful 2019 season.
