Biographical Info

Born in San Mateo, California, Tom Brady attended Junipero High School and graduated from St. Mary’s Cathedral in 1995. In addition to being a star football player, Brady was also an excellent baseball player and was drafted as a catcher by the Montreal Expos in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft. Brady would play college football for the University of Michigan. After backing up fellow future NFL quarterback Brian Griese, Brady started every game in the 1998 and 1999 seasons. Brady’s career highlights as Michigan’s starting quarterback include the 1998 Rose Bowl, 1999 Citrus Bowl and the 2000 Orange Bowl. Not regarded as a blue chip prospect coming out of college, Brady was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 6th round of the 2000 NFL Draft. This is now considered one of the greatest steals in the history of any draft. In Brady’s 2nd season with the Patriots, Brady took over as starting quarterback for an injured Drew Bledsoe. Brady subsequently led the Patriots to a victory in Super Bowl XXXVI and won the Super Bowl MVP that same season. Since then, Brady has guided the Patriots to 3 more additional Super Bowl titles (XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLIX). Brady was also the game MVP in Super Bowls XXXVIII and XLIX. In addition to winning Super Bowls as the cornerstone of the New England Patriots, Brady has also been named to the Pro Bowl 10 times and is a 2 time NFL MVP. He has also won several awards outside the NFL, such as the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year in 2005, the Sporting News Sportsman of the Year in 2004 and 2007, and the Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year Award in 2007. Brady has also been named to the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team and currently holds the NFL record for most career wins with a single team.
