Bradford's father had suffered a stroke which left him partially paralyzed so that he could only throw underhand when playing catch with his son. Author Michael Lewis speculates that memories of his father's throwing motion may have contributed to the development of Bradford's pitching style.

Bradford enrolled at Byram High School. Matter of fact, he had not exhibited outstanding athletic talent through the early years of high school. Upon graduation, he joined Hinds Community College and the University of Southern Mississippi.
