Brady Mayer

Class of 1974

  Perhaps no athlete in AB history more exemplifies the true joy and spirit of competition than Brady Mayer. As a three time captain, his intense desire and esprit de corps naturally made Brady a person his teammates unquestionably followed into the fray. As a two-way Dual County League All-Star at safety/running back and Lowell Sun All-Star, Brady's aggressive style of play and no-quit attitude made him the scurge of the D.C.L. If Brady was on the field, the game would be played at full tilt and hell bent for leather till the final whistle. As much as he accomplished on the grid iron, Brady truly excelled as a track and field "Mr. Everything." As a teammate of fellow Hall of Famers Paul Barbadoro and Daryl Schwartz, their 1973 track team was State Class C Champions. Individually, Brady was undefeated in dual meets in the triple jump and was a high jump and high hurdle competitor extraordinaire. Brady still holds the school record in the triple jump at 43'81/2" and was a 1974 Class C Triple Jump State Champion. Upon graduation, Brady attended the University of Bridgeport as a participant in the football program. When Bridgeport unexpectantly cut the program, Brady's versatility was apparent again. As a transfer student athlete to UMASS/Amherst, he excelled in track and field starring in the triple jump/decathalon/ high jump. In the spring of 1976, Brady was the team leader in total points scored. From 1979 to 1982, he was an UMASS Assistant Track Coach for both men and women. Brady's most memorable moment at AB was beating arch-rival Maynard High School in the first football game ever played between the two schools. Brady resides in Hudson, Massachusetts with his wife Jeanne and two sons Sean and Adam. Brady is self-employed as a successful manufacturer's representative and enjoys coaching his sons youth teams. He continues to enjoy participating in organized sports and assisting the AB football team with preseason training camps.
