Austin Peay State University Hall of Fame Inductee Bob Bradley key component of Aaron’s great basketball successes

 

Written by Brad Kirtley
APSU Sports Information

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – When Bob Bradley arrived on campus back in 1958 from nearby Todd County (KY), he was a member of what most considered Dave Aaron’s “greatest freshmen class,” a group that also included Jim Stewart (a member of the University’s Athletics Hall of Fame who later went on to a long major league baseball career); Roger Davis, whom Bradley competed against in high school; John Camp; Jim Henderson; Tommy Phillips and Freddy Overton.

The 6-foot-6 Bradley and his freshmen teammates lived up to the billing. Playing in an era when freshmen were unable to compete at the varsity level, they played away from the spotlight, but used that time to develop chemistry that would prove essential over the next three seasons.
