/> Among the Sooner entourage attending with Bradford were his parents, Kent and Martha; OU athletic director Joe Castiglione; coach Bob Stoops; and seven assistant coaches (Kevin Wilson, Josh Heupel, Jay Norvell, Cale Gundy, James Patton, Chris Wilson and Bobby Jack Wright).

"I would just say this, as great a player Sam is, I think he is a better Christian, a better son, a better teammate, a better student,” Stoops said. "He’s what you want to be.”

After remarks from Castiglione and Stoops, Bradford delivered his acceptance speech.

"It’s really hard to put into the words the emotions I’ve felt these past couple days,” Bradford said. "I don’t think I can really describe what it feels like to win the Heisman Trophy.”
