Sports | Princeton (1943)
New Jersey’s best known scholar-athlete, Bill Bradley was a three-time All-American basketball player at Princeton University and 1965 National Player of the Year. Graduating with honors, Bradley was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study at Oxford University after which he returned to lead the New York Knicks during their glory days in the late sixties and early seventies. Elected to the Hall of Fame, Dollar Bill used his fame and intellect to become a U.S. Senator from New Jersey. Now out of politics, Bill Bradley works as an investment banker and consultant whose views are continuously sought. He is an exceptional role model for athletes because of his drive for perfection not only on the court, but also in politics and in business.
