EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr. was born on August 3, 1977, in San Mateo, California. The only son and youngest child of Tom Sr. and Galyn Brady, Tom Jr. grew up with three older sisters, all of whom excelled at sports. As a child, Tom cheered his sisters on at their softball, soccer, and basketball games, and they imparted to him their competitive spirit.

Tom also cheered on the San Francisco 49ers – in fact, the Brady family is said to have attended every 49ers home game they could manage. One of Tom's more notable childhood memories is attending the 1981 NFC Championship Game and witnessing "The Catch," Joe Montana's iconic touchdown pass to Dwight Clark. A devout Joe Montana fan, Tom has spoken publicly about his admiration for the 49ers quarterback. "I'll never be in Joe's category," said Brady after a recent football game, despite having just overtaken Montana on the career passing touchdown list.

A multisport athlete at San Mateo's Juniper Serro High School, Tom Brady stood out on the football field as a quarterback. Passing for 3,702 yards and 31 touchdowns during his high school career, Tom caught the eye of the coaches of the University of Michigan football team.

Tom also excelled as his high school baseball team's catcher. What many people don't realize is that he was good enough at baseball for the Montreal Expos to draft him in the 18th round of the 1995 Major League Baseball draft. The football world would have looked quite a bit different if Tom hadn't passed on baseball and instead accepted a scholarship to play football at Michigan.

While at Michigan, Tom rode the bench for two years until finally earning the starting quarterback job in his junior year. Despite being an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection his junior year, Tom was drafted as the 199th pick in the sixth round of the 2000 National Football League Draft by the New England Patriots.
