CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- Mount Mercy University announced the Athletic Hall of Fame class of 2016 today, with Brandon Bradley '07, Nick Miller '09 and David and Lonna '86 Drewelow being inducted on Saturday, Sept. 24, as part of Alumni Reunion Weekend.
Bradley, from Franklin, Tenn., was a two-year baseball standout for the Mustangs. He had one of the most prolific seasons in school history as a senior while leading Mount Mercy to the NAIA Region VII Tournament. Bradley was an NAIA second-team all-American, the NAIA Region VII Player of the Year and the Midwest Collegiate Conference Player of the Year.
In 2007, Bradley batted .394 with 12 home runs and 43 runs batted in. His .758 slugging percentage was third on Mount Mercy's single-season list, while the dozen homers ranked sixth. Bradley's career totals put him in the top 10 all-time in slugging percentage (2nd/.681), home runs (6th/23) and on-base percentage (8th/.449) and he is 11th in career batting average (.355).
Miller, a native of Norway, Iowa, was a four-time all-conference performer for the Mount Mercy men's soccer program. He was second-team all-conference in 2004, then made the first team in 2005. A cancer diagnosis threatened to end his career in 2006, but after a year off, Miller made a triumphant return to the Mustangs in 2007 and was a first-team all-conference selection as a junior and senior.
Miller is Mount Mercy's all-time leading scorer with 60 career goals and 146 points. His 26 assists are second in school history. Miller, a double-digit scorer in each of his four seasons, scored three goals in a game seven times. His 20 goals in 2008 are a school record. He also had eight assists as a senior for a school record 48 points.
