Everybody’s favorite quarterback, Sam Bradford, is no stranger to trophies. His mantel currently houses a Heisman Trophy, and NFL Rookie of the Year, and there is plenty of room for an NFL MVP and Lombardi Trophy as well. As if that wasn’t good enough, Oklahoma University honored Sammy with a 10-foot tall bronze statue over the weekend. The Sooner family honored their Heisman Trophy-winning signal caller on Saturday night, and as you can see, the trophy is pretty spectacular. It sounds like Bradford was pretty blown away by the whole thing.
“You know,” Bradford said, “I’m pretty young to be walking around looking at a statue of myself. “I never thought I’d be standing here giving a speech in front of a statue of myself,” Bradford said, with confetti still in his hair. “Pretty cool, though.” (Tulsa World)
Bradford’s statue will join a group that includes former Heisman winners Billy Vessels, Steve Owens, Billy Sims and Jason White. It was a pretty special evening, and I just want to congratulate Sam on his big day. There haven’t been many positive stories over the last few weeks thanks to the lockout, so it’s nice to have something fun and interesting to write about.
