Phil Bradley was the featured speaker at the May 2, 2013, noon luncheon of Golden K Kiwanis club at Jack's Gourmet Restaurant. Quoting from Wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Bradley>:
One of the most decorated athletes in MU annals, Bradley lettered in football at MU from 1977-81, and in baseball in 1980-81. Bradley quarterbacked the Tigers to three bowl games. He was a three-time Big Eight Conference "Offensive Player of the Year" and set the conference total offense record at 6,459 yards which stood for 10 years. In baseball, he starred as an outfielder on MU teams that won the Big Eight championship in 1980, and went to the NCAA Tournament in 1980 and '81.
Bradley gave a brief review of his years as an MU student athlete and mentioned his current volunteer service to women's softball coach Ehren Earlywine who started his coaching career under Bradley, a former Major League outfielder.
