Sam Bradford Gets A Statue At Oklahoma

Former Oklahoma Sooner quarterback Sam Bradford is the latest to be immortalized for his collegiate feats. At the Sooner Spectacular gala event Saturday night inside Cox Pavilion at State Fair Park, Bradford's official Heisman Trophy statue - the one that will stand alongside Billy Vessels, Steve Owens, Billy Sims and Jason White in OU's Heisman Park outside Memorial Stadium - was unveiled.

Bradford seemed to be in awe of the whole ceremony.

"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."

He also feels that he's too young t be seeing a statue of himself.

"You know," Bradford said, "I'm pretty young to be walking around looking at a statue of myself."

Bradford won't be the last to be bronzed at Oklahoma.
