Terry Bradshaw Childhood

Terry Paxton Bradshaw was born on September 2, 1948 in Shreveport, LA. He is the son of Novis and William Bradshaw. Born into a farming family, Bradshaw grew up learning what hard work was by working in the field. That work ethic helped him develop his passing skills. As a kid, he was constantly throwing the football and about anything else he could pick up to improve his arm strength and accuracy.
