Bradford donates $500K to Oklahoma dorm project

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Former Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford is giving $500,000 toward the construction of a new dormitory at Oklahoma.

The university announced Saturday that Bradford was donating a half-million dollars that will go toward the building of Headington Hall, which is scheduled to be completed in fall 2013 and will house athletes and students.

Bradford's gift comes two months after Adrian Peterson pledged $1 million to the Headington Hall project and a scholarship endowment. The university called that donation the largest ever from a former student-athlete.

The interior of a dining hall inside the dormitory will be named after Bradford, who is now the starting quarterback for the St. Louis Rams.
