Monacan’s standout running back Korey Bridy reeled in his first offer over the weekend, from Virginia Union University. VUU is located right here in the city Richmond, and the Panthers compete at NCAA Division II level in the CIAA conference.
Bridy is a two-way player for the Chiefs, impressing at both running back and defensive back because of his elite athleticism. The 5-11, 185-pound running back notched 1,364 total yards and 31 touchdowns this past season, leading Monacan to a 9-3 record.
Bridy has plenty of tools to help him succeed at the next level like his athleticism and versatility.
“Korey is the fastest player on our team along with being among the strongest,” said Monacan coach Jim Henderson, “he has great vision between the tackles and great hands catching the ball out of the backfield.”
As Bridy returns to play his senior season at Monacan, he will be looking to impress scouts and lure more offers his way, while also doing his best to help continue Monacan’s recent success and return to the 4A postseason. He credits Monacan for a lot of his development as a player.
“The coaching staff is great, they push you to be the best that you can be,” said Bridy, “We’re built to win.”
Bridy will be looking to lead Monacan’s backfield and build upon a strong 2016 campaign while Virginia Union, among other schools, will be watching intently.
