EUREKA – For the first time in his career, Eureka College's Pierce Bradford (Decatur, Ill./Argenta-Oreana) is a member of the D3football.com Team of the Week.

Bradford hauled in five receptions for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the Red Devils' 26-3 win over Concordia Chicago on Saturday. His scores included a 34-yard touchdown at the start of the second half and an 88-yard catch-and-run to the end zone in the third quarter.

The junior wide receiver is the first Red Devil to be named to the D3football.com Team of the Week since James Douglas III on Nov. 5, 2019.

In three weeks, Bradford has tallied 260 receiving yards on 15 receptions and is third in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference with four receiving touchdowns.

On Saturday at 3 p.m., Eureka (1-2) is hosting Rockford (1-2) at McKinzie Field for the Red Devils' final home game of the 2021 spring season.
