#8SportsBlitz Pre-Season: Benedictine

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Benedictine finished 2014 with a 10-2 record and a state championship, and 2015 could be even better for the Cadets.

Graduation hurt Benedictine up front, but the Cadets are loaded at the skill positions. The most prominent name among their talented speedsters is Scott Bracey. The senior plays both wide receiver and quarterback, and he’s already verbally committed to play his college football at Duke.

Joining Bracey in the receiving corps are seniors Donaven Tennyson and Justin Smith. Jake Waldrop will throw to them and Sylvester Mayers will carry the ball out of the backfield.

On defense, the Cadets boast another major college prospect in junior linebacker Ellis Brooks.

If anything gets in Benedictine’s way it will be the unforeseen: injuries. Aside from that, they’ll be hard to stop.
