They say legends are made in the weight room, so here’s one.
Last week, wideout Rodney Bradley, a transfer from Navarro Junior College, was exercising in the UH weight room.
A coach asked: “How high can you jump?”
Bradley then touched the ceiling.
With his open palm.
The ceiling is about 11 1/2 feet from the ground.
Teammates also have marveled at his speed during unsupervised drills.
Bradley is competing at right wideout this spring.
