Uncovered Footage Of Tom Brady’s First-Ever Media Interview Shows Him As A Shy Youth With A Lot Of Confidence And Promise
March 27, 2020
Before Tom Brady was drafted in the NFL, he spent four years playing football at Michigan. Before that, he was a normal high school athlete that was working towards fulfilling his goals for the future.
More than 20 years have passed since Tom Brady was drafted in the NFL by the New England Patriots. This offseason, he left the team for the first time ever and signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We are yet to see him make his debut for that team but right now, let’s take a moment to remind ourselves of high school football player Brady. Check out these highlights from back in the day he was in high school:
Former Serra coach John Kirby used to coach Brady back in the day. When he was asked about his memories of Brady, Kirby explained:
“I hear him audible and it reminds me of our own little code we started on the JV team. When he saw a DB playing too tight, Tom would pull on his face mask and it would change a short route into a streak. I can still feel that anxious feeling when he did it because I knew the ball would be coming to me and he’d put it right on the money. And he did time after time.”
In his first ever interview, Brady said this of himself:
“Everybody tells me I have a pretty strong arm, which is good. I’m pretty accurate with it. I think I need to work on my speed a little bit, but hopefully, that will come in time.”
Today, Brady is known as the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. At the age of 42, he is still determined to add more titles to his already amazing resume that includes six Super Bowl titles.
