A four-year letterman at the University of Kansas, Bradley McDougald gave Jayhawks fans the pleasure of watching what hard work and a team mentality can do for a player.
As a true freshman wide receiver, McDougald played in all 12 games on offense, defense and special teams. He recorded 33 receptions for 318 yards (9.64 yards per catch), five tackles with an interception and averaged 18.8 yards per return on 21 kickoffs.
During his sophomore season in 2010, he began seeing less playing time on offense and was asked to play a bigger role at safety.
That season, he notched only 19 receptions for 240 yards (12.63 YPC) and a touchdown while recording 16 tackles and another interception on defense. His coaches saw something special from him on the defensive side of the ball.
They asked him to switch full-time to safety for his junior year, and over his final two seasons in Lawrence, McDougald was one of the leaders of the Jayhawks defense.
He racked up an average of 90 tackles per season with five total interceptions and 11 passes defended. He finished his career with 203 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, two sacks, seven interceptions, 14 passes defended and four forced fumbles.
Here are some of McDougald’s best plays from his career at Kansas.
