NFL Legend Terry Bradshaw leads SABF

Shenandoah Apple Blossom 2022

This year’s Grand Marshall for the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival was Terry Bradshaw.

He was excited to finally make it to the festival after originally signing on two years ago.

Bradshaw was impressed by the amount of Steeler’s fans in the area and has his own ties to the region.

His favorite song to sing with his daughter is “Crazy” by Winchester native Patsy Cline.

Bradshaw said, “we have been singing that song together since she was 3 years old but my daughter is a much better singer than I am.”

The Hall of Fame quarterback reflected on his career and said what he is most proud of are his four Super Bowl victories.

“Anybody can have stats but to be a great quarterback you have to win,” said Bradshaw.

He then went on to discuss some of his favorite quarterbacks to watch play currently, “Tom Brady, Justin Herbert, Patrick Mahomes, and Matt Stafford have the stats and can win.”

When turning his focus to the newest Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett he said, “I got to speak with him the day after he was drafted and congratulated him. Pittsburgh is a great franchise and will put him in a position to succeed. It’s the perfect fit. He’s smart and competitive.”

Terry also believes that Carson Wentz should succeed in Washington with the Commanders, “as long as he gets protection. He was unfairly criticized after his injury, but I am rooting for him. He’s a good person and I like to root for good people.”
