Bradford is an official citizen of the Cherokee Nation, and is also listed on the tribe’s rolls. He is one-sixteenth Cherokee through his paternal great-great-grandmother, Susie Walkingstick, who was a full-blooded Cherokee. Bradford is the first person of identified Cherokee descent to start at quarterback for a Division I university since Sonny Sixkiller, a full-blooded Cherokee, who played for the University of Washington during the 1970–1972 seasons. Greg Maddox, a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, started for James Madison from 1996–1998 and is the last Native American to hold the distinction before Bradford. Bradford also holds the distinction of being the first Native American to win the Heisman Trophy.

In 2009, Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett declared January 13 as “Sam Bradford Day” in Oklahoma City.
