Born on August 3, 1977, in San Mateo, California, Tom Brady had a background in baseball and football before being picked to play with the New England Patriots in 2000. Working with coach Bill Belichick, he's led the team to three Super Bowls championships, been voted league MVP twice and recognized as Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated. He married supermodel Gisele Bündchen in 2004.
Born on August 3, 1977, in San Mateo, California, Tom Brady excelled at both football and baseball at Junipero Serra High School. After graduating in 1995, Brady passed up a chance to play professional baseball to go to University of Michigan.
Although a member of the school's football team, Brady did not spend much time on the field in his first two college seasons. In his junior year, however, he served as the starting quarterback. That season, Brady threw 350 passes for 2,636 yards. In his final season, he helped lead his team to an Orange Bowl victory in 2000.
Moving on to the NFL, Brady was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2000. Initially he served as a backup quarterback and played in only one game in his first season. The 2001 season was a different story. After starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe was injured, Brady took over for him. He proved to be a strong leader, with a powerful arm and good aim. Anyone who doubted his abilities only had to look at the team's record, an impressive 11 wins to 3 losses in the 14 games that Brady started. In the post-season, he helped the team secure a win over the St. Louis Rams at Super Bowl XXXVI. He was received the Most Valuable Player Award for this Super Bowl.
Two years later, Brady led his team to another win at Super Bowl XXXVIII against the Carolina Panthers. For his efforts, he won his second Super Bowl MVP Award. Brady signed a new six-year contract with the New England Patriots in 2005. For the 2006 season, the team had 12 wins and 4 losses in the regular season.
The following season proved to be another amazing time for the football star. He led the Patriots through an undefeated, regular season. The team faced off against the New York Giants at Super Bowl XLII, losing to their nearby rival in a very close game.
During the first game of the 2008 season, however, Brady was quickly sidelined with a knee injury. He had several surgeries and extensive rehabilitation to repair the damage, forcing him to sit out the entire season. While some wondered whether the injury would be a career-ender, Brady came back to prove the doubters wrong. He signed a new contract with the team in 2010.
In the 2011 season, Brady pulled out all the stops, helping the team secure their place at Super Bowl XLVI. The Patriots once again battled the New York Giants in football's ultimate game, hoping to emerge victorious. Before the big event, Brady's wife, model Gisele Bündchen, sent out an email to friends and family. She asked them to pray for Brady and to "envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory." Unfortunately, these prayers went unanswered in an extremely tight game.
