Who is quarterback tom brady dating
When Pats Nation thanks the football gods for gifting Tom Brady to New England, they should also remember to thank Santangelo for his advice to the very special California kid.Despite a potentially promising career in baseball, Brady left California to play football at the University of Michigan in 1996.Perhaps football was in Brady’s DNA more than he realized.The quarterback kept his protective pads on in both football and baseball, finding his niche behind home plate as a catcher.Brady was even at Candlestick Park for the famous “The Catch” game.Brady attended an all-boys Catholic high school, Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, CA.The only stats Brady had to show after his first two seasons were 15 passes completed for 129 yards, an interception, and two rushing attempts for -14 yards.As a junior, Brady finally got his opportunity to shine when he was named the starting quarterback.
With three older siblings who were highly involved in athletics year-round, the youngest Brady sibling developed a competitive spirit at an early age.
In Brady’s sophomore year, the Wolverines improved on their impressive 8-4 record with an undefeated 12-0 season. However, Brady was riding pine through the first two years of his college career.
While Brady sat on the bench, it was QB Scott Dreisbach under center for the Wolverines in ’96 and future Pro Bowl QB Brian Griese who led the national championship charge in ’97.
He didn’t just restrict his talents to one sport, though.
In the fall, he suited up for football; in the spring, he switched helmets to play baseball.
