    While the young WR is on the verge of making a dream come true, it has been the love and support that started from birth that has allowed him to be able to chase his dreams, overcome obstacles, and get to the cusp of the pinnacle that will culminate with hearing his name called in the 2024 NFL Draft.

    Getting To Know Benji

    The football blood runs through Ladd’s veins, and it was handed down to him from his father Benji, who was a high-level football player in his own right. His skills earned him a Georgia All-State selection from 1993 to 1994 and an impressive record of 25-2 during his tenure as the school’s QB.

    Following the conclusion of his high school career, Benji earned a scholarship and continued to play football at Georgia Military College. His career did not progress to the NFL ranks like his son’s will, but the talent and passion for the game is something that has been passed down at an early age with Ladd now taking the torch and running with it.

    Getting To Know Brittney

    Brittney McConkey is a homemaker, and compassionate mother, who has been a big part of the life Ladd has led and created for himself. When she isn’t spending time rooting her children on, and being a proud mother on social media, Brittney participates in Transfer for Life in the Murray area, dedicating herself to raising funds and awareness for diverse illnesses.
