Brad is the oldest son of Kim and Dave Meredith. His younger brother, Brian (14), attends Bemis Junior High and also enjoys football.
Brad joined the Macomb Mustang Youth Football team at age 9. From there, he went on to play seventh/eighth grade football for the Bemis Spartans where he met up with many of his current teammates. Once at Henry Ford II High School, he started his freshman year playing defensive line for the JV team. As a sophomore, he started on the varsity defensive line. During his junior and senior years, Brad was a two-way player on both the offensive and defensive lines, rarely coming off the field. Brad also participated in track and field, took part in the Henry Ford II Power Lifting club and devoted much of his free time to weight training and conditioning.
Brad said, “I would like to thank my mom, dad, brother, and grandparents for always supporting me over the years. Whether it was coaching youth football, sitting in miserable weather to watch my games or giving me rides back and forth, my family was always there for me. I’d also like to thank Coach Todd Winters, the entire athletic staff, and my teammates and friends who continually challenged me to be the best on and off the field.”
