Tom Carlin on Shane Bradley: ""Similar to his twin brother Conor, Shane brings great leadership and a certain mentality that we don't see very often. He is very comfortable playing out of the back, winning challenges, and breaking up plays. His understanding of the defensive side of the game is mature beyond his years and it's a testament to the high level coaching he's received at The Haverford School and the Philadelphia Union Academy."
