Brad Morton[1][2] is one of the premier football players at Millard Fillmore Middle School, where he's a school bully and the popular "dumb jock". He usually thinks he's a hot shot, but at some points he just utterly fails.

He's two years older than Jake Long, making him 16 because he was held back twice in elementary school for failing 3rd grade[3].

Jake is frequently the target of Brad's abuse despite the former also being considered cool at school, usually by him flaunting something, such as a car[3], a large wad of money[4], etc., at Jake's face. However, Jake almost always manages to get even either by himself or because of Brad's own actions backfiring.

He's very egotistical, constantly referring to himself as "The Bradster". He was a major foil to Jake getting a chance to spend time with Rose during school. He once took Rose to the school dance but dumped her for Jasmine, a girl Jake took to that dance unaware that she was a Nix[5]. Afterwards, he was still interested in Rose and was oblivious to the fact she doesn't like him. He always tried to steal Rose away from Jake whenever they show up.

It seems that Brad hides his fears and embarrassing secrets like his fear of the dark[6] and dreaming of becoming a ballerina[7] with his tough-guy attitude.


His father is a police officer and, much like his son, picks on other people, including Jonathan Long[8](Jake Long and Haley Long's father)
