Brady Vodicka is one of the best players from the Denver, CO area in the Class of 2026.
The 5-foot-11, 155-pound Vodicka, who attends Liberty Middle School, is a dynamic player that works as a quarterback.
Vodicka has earned plenty of recognition during his career, such as:
2020 NFA QB Collective Duel invite
2018 and 2019 OD Camp All American Game invite
2019 USA Football camp all star game invite
Vodicka is humbled by the accolades.
“It means I can compete well with other players from around the country at the highest level,” Vodicka said. “It was great, I really enjoyed getting to know some of the other athletes and knowing I can compete at their level.”
Vodicka has attended the following camps: Nextgen’s Richmond, VA showcase, NFA QB Collective, and QBUniverse.
No matter the opponent, every game Vodicka is determined to give it his all.
Vodicka is going all out.
The motor is always at full throttle whenever Vodicka steps between the lines.
“My mindset is to be a leader for the team. As a QB the rest of the team is looking at my body language and attitude,” Vodicka said. “I work hard to make sure they see me at my best.”
Vodicka has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the field. Vodicka tells why he enjoys the game of football so much.
“I love being with my friends/teammates and working toward wins,” Vodicka said.
Vodicka has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life.
“Football has taught me the harder you work the better things get,” Vodicka said.
Vodicka shares his favorite memories of playing football.
“A last second pass play to win the championship that we were underdogs in,” Vodicka said. “My team played awesome that day and we finished with a great play.”
Vodicka takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Vodicka makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.
“I try to lead by example, work hard in the season and in the offseason. Getting my teammates involved in the offseason workouts. I try to be the first person in the end zone when congratulating my teammates as well as the first guy over to encourage them when things go wrong,” Vodicka said. “The best advice I give is passing the knowledge from my coaches that bad stuff will happen and we need to move forward to the next play.”
Vodicka is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.
“My coaches are great. They really stress being a leader and leading by example,” Vodicka said. “The best advice I’ve gotten is that bad things will happen during a game, move on to the next play because there is nothing you can do about the past.”
Vodicka patterns his mentality after these standouts.
“I look up to Josh Allen and Russell Wilson. Josh Allen is big, has a great arm and can run (kind of like me). He also went to Wyoming where my mom and dad went,” Vodicka said. “Russell Wilson really seems like a great leader on and off the field, and a great player.”
Vodicka lists math as his favorite subject in school.
“I am pretty good at it and it continues to be challenging,” Vodicka said.
Vodicka maintains a rigorous schedule to stay sharp.
“Online QB school work,” Vodicka said. “Also daily drops and throws to our net at the house.”
Vodicka is striving for greatness in all that he does.
“I want to start varsity as early as I can. I will challenge myself to be ready as early as possible if the opportunity comes,” Vodicka said. “After that I want to lead my teams to wins and state championships.”
Vodicka describes what he believes separates himself from the pack.
“I have always been athletically gifted (big, fast and natural talent) and I continue to work on that and my skills to get better and better,” Vodicka said. “ I am working hard on my leadership and knowledge of the entire game of football.”
