MoCo Spotlight: Program Created By MoCo Native Has Taken High School Sports By Storm

by MCS Staff
Lead ‘Em Up, a leadership and character program created by Watkins Mill graduate Adam Bradley, provides coaches with drills and exercises they can use to develop their players into the leaders needed to win…on and off the field.

Bradley started the program in 2015 at Watkins Mill and in just three years, it has been used by over 500 teams 10,000 + athletes throughout the country.

Lead ‘Em Up has been featured at some of the top camps and clinics nationally, including, Nike, Spalding, Glazier, PGC Basketball and the Committed Combine.

Lead ‘Em Up focuses on these 8 points:

  • When the leader improves, everybody wins.
  • Leadership is a skill– and like any skill, it needs practice in order to improve.
  • Great leaders can make the “uncool” into the new “cool”
  • Leadership isn’t sometimes, it’s all-the-time.
  • Better people make better athletes
  • Leading by example is not enough; there needs to be more.
  • The more you pour into your players, the more they have to give.
  • We want players as excited about leadership development as they are about skill development.

Adam was born and raised in Montgomery County and works closely with many business owners and coaches in the county.

Kayla Smith and Chick-Fil-A Germantown are currently sponsoring the program at Clarksburg, Northwest, Seneca Valley, and Watkins Mill High Schools, while Ryan Mollet and M&M Builders are sponsoring the program at B-CC, Walter Johnson, and Walt Whitman High Schools.
