Bio

Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr. was born in San Mateo, California on August 3, 1977. A quarterback for the New England Patriots, he is a three-time Super Bowl champion and, along with John Elway, one of only two quarterbacks to lead a team to five Super Bowls. His accomplishments have seen him named to nine Pro Bowls and included in the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.

Brady played college football for the Michigan Wolverines and led the team to victory in the 1999 Citrus Bowl and the 2000 Orange Bowl. Later in 2000, he was drafted to the New England Patriots as pick number 199 of the NFL Draft. His achievements since that time have seen him widely considered one of the best draft steals ever.

Having started as the Patriot's fourth string quarterback, Brady established himself during his second year, taking over as starting quarterback from Drew Bledsoe and leading the Patriots to the AFC East Championship and the AFC Championship. The team were considered huge underdogs going into the Super Bowl against the St. Louis Rams, but Brady inspired the team to victory and was named the Super Bowl MVP. At the time, the victory made Brady the youngest Super Bowl-winning quarterback ever.

Similar success followed in 2003 and the Patriots beat the Carolina Panthers to win Super Bowl XXXVIII, with Brady again named as the game's MVP. The following year, the team triumphed at Super Bowl XXXIX, beating the Philadelphia Eagles to collect their third Super Bowl in the space of four years. Between the 2003 and 2004 seasons, the Patriots also set a new NFL record, with 21 straight wins.

In 2007, Brady led the Patriots to the first ever 16-0 regular season record in NFL history. Along the way, he became the first quarterback to throw 50 touchdown passes in a single season and achieved the first perfect passer rating of his career in a game against the Miami Dolphins. He was named as the NFL's MVP and Offensive Player of the Year and was voted as the Male Athlete of the Year by the Associated Press. The Patriots went on to play in the Super Bowl, but lost to the New York Giants. In 2010, Brady was once again named as the NFL's MVP, while in 2011 he led the Patriots to his fifth Super Bowl, eventually losing to the Giants once again.
