Adair Warriors – 2023 Football Team Preview – Presented by Woodshed





Adair will look very familiar on offense in 2023 under first-year head coach and former Warriors’ standout Brady Bradbury, who takes over for Rob Gilstrap. The Warriors return nine starters to an offense that will use a multiple spread attack and go up-tempo. Directing the offense will be senior quarterback Cale Winfrey (6-1, 165). Winfrey threw for 646 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore. He also rushed for 138 yards with five TDs. Winfrey’s top target will be junior wide receiver Ryan Hedges (6-3, 175). Hedges had 18 receptions with a team-high 379 yards in seven games last year. Senior Reese Jackson (6-1, 210) will also be a primary target for Winfrey. Jackson, a VYPE Top 100 selection, saw time as a quarterback in 2022 where he threw for 664 yards and four TDs while rushing for 239 yards and six scores in seven games. “We will use a balanced attack and take what the defense gives us,” Bradbury said. Adair returns most of its experience along the offensive line. Junior left tackle De’Prince Allen (6-1, 240) and junior right guard Davien Tedford (6-3, 240) will be the anchors. Tight end Luke Wilson (6-0, 195, Jr.) also returns.


The Warriors also welcome back nine starters defensively. Senior defensive ends Hayden Proctor (6-1, 210) and Isaiah Gamez (5-10, 205), and junior defensive tackle Zeb Heaton (5-11, 220) will be the leaders on Adair’s multiple front. Proctor collected 20 tackles, including four for losses, in six games in 2022. He also had one sack and a fumble recovery. Gamez recorded 25 tackles as a junior. “We are a multiple front defense that will use our speed to attack opposing defenses,” Bradbury said. Cooper McCord (5-10, 180, So.) and Eli Lyon (6-0, 175, Sr.) will fill in at the linebacker positions. McCord registered 40 total tackles in eight games last year, to go along with one interception and one fumble recovery.  Lyon had 35 tackles, two tackles for losses, and a pair of fumble recoveries in 2022. Cooper Sparks (6-1, 160, Jr.) will lead the secondary from one of the cornerback spots. “We return nine starters on both sides of the ball,” Bradbury said. “Looking to get back to Adair toughness, have lots of team speed, and an experienced offensive line.”
