As you all know, Sam Bradford had a great season this year. Sam broke a record of throwing 468 yards in a single game in his sophomore year! Now that's what I call a record.
Sam also led the Sooners to breaking another record, which is scoring the most points in a single season, which was 702. Hawaii set the record in 2006, but the Sooners managed to break it!
With these kinds of yards, Bradford managed to lead the Sooners to the BCS Championship with a 12-1 record, losing only to Texas. But sadly the Sooners lost to Florida.
After the regular season ended, Bradford got a Davey O'Brien Award and Heisman Award, beating Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow.
Bradford also was the Freshman of the Year in his freshman year.
Bradford's High School Years
Bradford went to Putnam City North High School in Oklahoma. These are his stats for his senior year in high school. He threw for 2,029 yards and 17 touchdowns in 17 games!
He wasn't very bright in high school because he only played the most in his senior year. He sat out in his freshman year and sophomore year and played not a lot in his junior year.
Going to His Junior Year
Some people say that he is going to go to the NFL draft after his junior year, but that's only a rumor. Bradford is looking forward to getting bigger stats and breaking more records in his junior year, and maybe even beat Tim Tebow and win two Heisman trophies in two years.
He had an injury on his wrist in his sophomore year, but I don't think it will affect him in his junior year. Actually I think he will just keep getting better and better. I also think that he is going to have a better next year than this year and lead the Sooners to the BCS game, this time to win it.
Well, this is all I have on Sam Bradford this time. Keep reading my articles and soon I will write another article about another rising star, or you can tell me what you want me to write about.
