George Bradley earned himself the nickname Bam early. No, it's not because the three-star Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) safety consistently delivers blows to opposing running backs and receivers, though he does do that with regular consistency.

No, Bam Bradley received the nickname from his aunt when he was just a little child because he always managed to find a way to get into trouble, much like Bamm-Bamm Rubble, the famous "Flintstones" cartoon character.

"That's been my name since I was born," Bradley said. "My auntie gave me that name because I used to be real bad. She used to say quit acting like Bamm-Bamm."
