Baseball & Football

In college, Brady was not a starter until his junior year. Brady was known for his intelligence and determination.

Not a lot was expected from Brady. He was taken in the sixth round and the Patriots had a starting quarterback with Drew Bledsoe. Early in the 2001 season, Drew Bledsoe was injured. Brady would then be named the starter. Brady was not spectacular as a starter right away. But he did not make many mistakes and showed leadership. With Brady as the starter, the New England Patriots would win the 2002 Super Bowl. Brady would also be named Super Bowl MVP in his very first trip to the big game.

Tom Brady would play 20 seasons for the New England Patriots. He would win an amazing six championships for New England. He also won Super Bowl MVP four times while a Patriot. When Brady would leave New England for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, fans were shocked. Brady would play for a new team for the first time in two decades. There were doubts about whether or not Tom Brady still had the ability to perform at a high level. 20 seasons in the NFL takes a toll on you. But Brady proved he had a lot of game left in him when he led the Bucs to the 2021 Super Bowl. Tampa Bay would win, and Brady would bring home another Super Bowl MVP Trophy.
