TBT: Video Of Tom Brady and Gronk Playing High School Football
Since we can't look ahead to Super Bowl Sunday, let's take a look back to when Tom Brady and Gronk played high school football. Brady's Junipero Serra High School home field is located less than 30 miles from the site of Sunday's Super Bowl in Santa Clara, California. Here's video of the 6 foot 4 senior paving his way to a scholarship at Michigan. Brady was famously drafted in the 6th round by the Patriots...meaning every team in the NFL had AT LEAST FIVE chances to draft the future Hall of Famer...but they ALL passed him over.
Gronk grew up in the Buffalo area, but moved to a Pittsburgh suburb for football. As you might imagine, he was a man among boys as a senior for his 2007 graduating class. Gronk went on to play three years for Arizona before being drafted 42nd overall by the New England Patriots in 2010.
