Sam Bradford, the starting quarterback for the University of Oklahoma football team, was selected as the 74th winner of the Heisman Memorial Trophy as the Most Outstanding College Football Player in the United States for 2008. During the past season Bradford completed 302 of his 442 passes, for 4,464 yards and 48 touchdowns while throwing only six interceptions. He also has rushed for five touchdowns. While leading the highest scoring offense in the history of Division I College Football, Bradford broke the Oklahoma season and career touchdown records both previously held by 2003 Heisman winner Jason White. His 84 career touchdowns are the most ever for a player at the end of his sophomore season. Off the football field, Bradford works with Special Spectators' visits, a national organization that brings children with life-threatening health issues to campus for a day with the football team. More than just an all-star athlete, Bradford, a finance major, boasts a 3.6 grade point average.

Jamaal Parker has a 3.3 grade point average--not bad for a senior who is also the fifth all-time triple jumper in University of Georgia history. Parker, a statistics major, was a bronze medalist at the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships in triple jump in 2008 and a three-time National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) All-American at King College. He is a member of Delta Epsilon Iota Academic Honor Society and made the SEC Spring Academic Honor Roll in 2008. Parker won the triple jump at the Tyson Invitational, finished second in triple jump at Virginia Tech Elite meet and finished first at Carle/Health Classic meet in 2009. He also worked to raise money by doing yard work for the elderly in 2005. Parker helped build houses for Habitat for Humanity in 2005 and serves as a volunteer tutor for statistics classes.
