Gus Bradley honored at hometown parade

June, 19, 2014
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Gus Bradley might be an NFL head coach, but he hasn't forgotten his roots.

Bradley will serve as the grand marshal of the parade on Saturday night that is part of the annual Covered Bridge Music & Arts Festival in his hometown of Zumbrota, Minnesota.

"It's a special place up there, my hometown, so I'm looking forward to it," Bradley said after the Jaguars wrapped up their three-day mandatory minicamp on Thursday afternoon. "To go back there and see guys I played hoops with on Sunday, and went to school with, and sports and all the activities ... But just to get a chance to see everybody, and then to get a chance to go back and see my family and my mom. I haven’t seen my mom since the season, so it’ll be a great chance to see her again.”

Wikipedia lists Bradley and Charles Clarence Beck, a comic book artist and the creator of Captain Marvel, as notable figures from Zumbrota.
