The Bradley Eagles were a Pittsburgh area (Mckees Rocks) semi-professional football team sponsored by the local Fraternal Order of Eagles. With beginnings in the 1910's; the Eagles were a dominant team in the Pittsburgh and Eastern Ohio area; playing games against several teams that were considered among the best of the pre-NFL professional squads.
