Bradford and Horton nominated for Sullivan Award

University of Oklahoma athletes Sam Bradford and Johathan Horton have been nominated for the 2008 Sullivan Award, given to the nations top amateur athlete.

Jonathan Horton was for the Sullivan Award after competing with the U.S. men's team in the Olympics and taking home the bronze medal. Horton stepped up big for the national team in a year year that it seemed the American's had little chance without veterans Paul and Morgan Hamm.

Bradford was brilliant for the Sooners in the '08-'09 football season. Bradford set NCAA sophomore quarterback records for yards and touchdowns and became only the second sophomore in the history of college football to take home the Heisman.

"That's amazing," said Sophomore communications major Andrew Travis. "I knew [Bradford] had already received a bunch of awards but I'm glad people are paying attention to Jonathan Horton."
