Bradley Jourdin is a Hall Of Famer with his long overdue induction into the Sault Steelers class finally coming in 2023. Jourdin was the very first player signed by the organization in its inaugural 1972 campaign and from there his career spanned 10 seasons with the Steelers. The Steelers were crowned champions of both the Northern Football Conference and the Eastern Canada Conference that memorable year. The versatile playmaker and team leader started as a flanker and special teams player, winning NFC championships again in 1975 and 1976. Jourdin claimed a fourth title in 1980 with the purple and white, this time as a defensive back. 

After his retirement from football as a player Brad volunteered his knowledge and experience to coaching, where he was able to coach both of his sons, eventually fulfilling a personal dream by playing along side Ryan Jourdin with the Sault Storm of the NFC, the Steelers having undergone a regime change for a brief time. Brad continues to contribute to the local football scene as a referee.

Bradley married Patsy Scott in 1975. They have five grandchildren by their three children, Ryan, Travis and Morgan.
