Add one more accomplishment to Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford's portfolio. On Tuesday morning the newly crowned Heisman Trophy winner rang the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange to begin the day's trading.

Bradford's trip to the exchange wraps up a whirlwind tour of New York that started nearly a week ago. Bradford left Oklahoma on Wednesday bound for Orlando and the ESPNU Home Depot College Football Awards show. After picking up the Davey O'Brien award on Thursday night, Bradford and his entourage headed to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony on Saturday night.

Since winning the Heisman, Bradford's been ushered around New York appearing on news talk shows and sportscasts. He'll head back to Oklahoma Tuesday afternoon.
