Why Campbell? Bradley said a big part of his decision was Campbell’s new coaching staff, which includes former Olympic Silver Medalist Cary Kolat, but that’s not all there is to it. “I would rather start a legacy at Campbell by becoming the first All-American and national champion at Campbell than to follow a legacy at Penn State,” he said. “The wrestling coach and school that you go to does not determine how successful you will be, only the athlete can determine how successful they will be.”
Most memorable time at Knightdale: “Winning Most Outstanding heavy-weight at (Greater Neuse River) Conference, as well as winning (GNRC) wrestler of the year with my twin brother Brandon this year.”
Notable: Bradley is an All-Greater Neuse River 4A Conference and All-Region wrestler and finished with a 36-0 record in the regular season his senior year.
Knightdale coach Jermod Mapp: “Bradley Skinner is the enforcer of Knightdale wrestling. I can always count him to set the tone I’m looking for day in and day out! A true gentleman and leader!”
