What are the 10 best individual performances from college football and basketball in the same season?
ESPN.com ranked the best combinations and OU's 2008-09 duo of Sam Bradford and Blake Griffin ranked second behind the iconic year from Bo Jackson and Charles Barkley at Auburn in 1983-84.
In 2008-09, Bradford won the Heisman Trophy and led the Sooners to the BCS National Championship game, and Griffin swept all six national player of the year awards in basketball.
Sam Bradford hasn't yet participated in 11-on-11 drills at Philadelphia Eagles minicamp, but the former Putnam City North and OU quarterback is planning on being ready for training camp.
"I think if I'm not ready for 11-on-11 by training camp, then I think something has gone terribly wrong," Bradford said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer . "That's the plan."
Bradford participated in 7-on-7 drills on Tuesday. He's battling back from his most recent ACL tear, which he suffered in the 2014 preseason before he was traded to the Eagles from the St. Louis Rams.
Most Oklahomans by now know of the legend of Sam Bradford - his athleticism that could have taken him into collegiate (and potentially pro) careers in golf, basketball, football or even hockey.
But fans of the Philadelphia Eagles haven't been quick to but into Bradford just yet as their quarterback of the future. Bradford hasn't yet had that roaring success in the NFL he experienced as a record-setting quarterback at Putnam City North and OU. He's battled injury after injury and was traded to the Eagles from the St. Louis Rams this offseason.
Paul Domowitch of Philly.com traveled to Oklahoma to write an extensive background piece on Bradford, interviewing former coaches Bob Wilson, Bob Stoops, Bradford's parents and more.
Stoops himself thinks Bradford will thrive in Philadelphia. From Domowitch's:
"I think Sam fits everything about what Chip wants to do," Stoops said in Part II of Domowitch's piece . "He's an incredible athlete who, because of injuries, hasn't been able to demonstrate it yet."
Sam Bradford is looking better.
The biggest question for the former OU All-American since his arrival in a trade from the St. Louis Rams to the Philadelphia Eagles is can he return strong from his latest ACL tear. Philly.com Eagles beat writer Jeff McLane wrote Monday that Bradford "looked a little more mobile" than he had in the previous two weeks of organized team activities.
Bradford sat out of team drills but took more snaps than last week.
"Bradford told reporters that he still couldn't definitively say that he would be 100 percent ready for the start of training camp," McLane said.
Bradford is working his way back from tearing his left ACL in a preseason game with the Rams in August. He was traded to the Eagles in March .
Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford is "right on schedule" in his return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, coach Chip Kelly said Thursday.
Bradford has been limited in the Eagles' three offseason team activites this week. He's participated in individual drills, but not team drills.
“He is on schedule," Kelly said, per Philly.com . "We all think there’s three phases – there’s medical rehab, performance rehab, and prepare to play. He’s probably at the tail end of medical rehab. He’ll probably start throwing some 7 on 7 next week, and I think he’s right on schedule.”
