Watch Bradley in Mizzou Network's 1979 Season Football Highlights

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Southeastern Conference 2013 Football Legends Class includes Mizzou Football and Baseball great Phil Bradley, along with 13 other former SEC stars who excelled on the gridiron and helped write the rich history of their sports at their respective institutions. The conference is announcing the legends from its Eastern Division schools on Wednesday, Sept. 18 and the Western Division schools on Thursday, Sept. 19.

Bradley was one of the top quarterbacks in Mizzou history and arguably the best two-sport athlete in Tiger annals. A three-time All-Conference pick from 1978-80, he won the Big Eight Offensive Player of the Year award as a senior in 1980. He quarterbacked Mizzou to 23 wins and three bowl games in his final three years and set the Big Eight total offense career record with 6,459. He was a star outfielder on MU baseball teams that won the Big Eight title in 1980 and played in two NCAA Tournaments. Bradley enjoyed an eight-year Major League baseball career and was named to the American League All-Star Team in 1985. He is currently a special assistant for the Major League Baseball Players Association and a volunteer coach for the nationally-ranked Tiger Softball team.

The class will be honored at the 2013 SEC Football "Weekend of Champions" Dec. 6-7 in Atlanta, Ga. The annual SEC Legends Dinner presented by AT&T will be held Dec. 6 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta and the group will also be recognized prior to the SEC Football Championship Game, which will be held at the Georgia Dome on Sat., Dec. 7.
