City Unveils Jim Bradley Championship Way
In honor of the late Mayfield High School (MHS) Head Football Coach Jim Bradley, the City of Las Cruces designated a portion of Tashiro Road the “Coach Jim Bradley Championship Way” at an unveiling ceremony Tuesday, July 11 at 9 a.m. in the west side parking lot of the field of dreams.
The sign designating the newly named roadway was unveiled by one of Bradley’s sons, MHS Head Football Coach Michael Bradley.
The ceremony was attended by members of the Bradley family, LCPS officials, LCPS School Board Vice President Ed Frank, Las Cruces Mayor Ken Myagishima, several city councilors and community leaders who were all instrumental in getting the field of dreams conceived and built.
Jim Bradley is the second winningest coach in New Mexico football history, having won a total of 310 games and seven state championships, including five at MHS. Throughout his coaching career he served as a football coach in Roswell, at MHS and at New Mexico State University. Bradley’s other son, Gary Bradley, is the head football coach at Carlsbad High School. Jim Bradley died in 2015 at the age of 82.
