Sam Bradford donates $500,000 to OU

Former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, who won the 2008 Heisman Trophy and was drafted No. 1 overall by the St. Louis Rams in 2010, has donated a $500,000 gift to the OU Athletics Department. The money will go toward the construction of Headington Hall, OU's new student housing facility that will open in fall 2013.

"My experience at Oklahoma made it possible for me to realize my dreams," said Bradford. "The coaches, the academic environment and every aspect of being a student-athlete at OU made me a better person. I am honored to give back to a program that did so much for me and hope that in some way this contribution can make it possible for those who follow me to enjoy the same kind of experience I did as a Sooner."
