NORMAN, Okla.—Former OU quarterback and native Oklahoman Sam Bradford is paying back his alma mater that helped him become an NFL star.

Bradford has donated $500,000 to OU to support the construction of Headington Hall, OU’s new student housing facility that is scheduled to open in the fall of next year.

In a statement, Bradford was quoted saying, “My experience at Oklahoma made it possible for me to realize my dreams. The coaches, the academic environment and every aspect of being a student-athlete at OU made me a better person. I am honored to give back to a program that did so much for me and hope that in some way this contribution can make it possible for those who follow me to enjoy the same kind of experience I did as a Sooner.”

In recognition of his gift, the interior of the dining hall will be named the “Sam Bradford Training Table.”
