McKinney, TX — The McKinney ISD Athletics Hall of Honor was established to recognize former student athletes, coaches, teams and community contributors who have made a significant impact on the history of our district’s athletics program. Each year since 2015, representatives from the district and the athletics department have gathered with honorees to recognize these men and women, to hear their stories and to be reminded of the powerful legacy that athletes can establish both on and off the field of competition.

The class of 2023 was officially inducted in January as the ninth class since the Hall of Honor was established in 2015. Induction into the Athletics Hall of Honor is the highest honor awarded in McKinney ISD Athletics.

Bradshaw starred in football and basketball at McKinney High School and became a two-time All-Southland Conference defensive back at the University of Texas at Arlington. Since the end of his playing career, Bradshaw has worked as a bank executive in the McKinney area.
