Update: The Big Ten has released video of Brady’s speech. Brady said his single greatest honor was being named a captain at Michigan – above all of his NFL accomplishments. Pretty cool.
Earlier: Heading into the 2013 Big Ten football season, all eyes are on Ohio State, not Michigan. Tom Brady, a Wolverines alum, knows a thing or two about being overlooked – he was drafted 199th overall by the New England Patriots in 2000. This morning, he spoke to the team in Ann Arbor – the school tweeted out a photo of the occasion.
Brady is in Detroit for the Patriots’ preseason game against the Lions. During his stop, he also took a photo with coach Brady Hoke.
It’s nice to see Brady giving back to his alma mater.
