Tom Brady is six feet and four and made of muscle, but that wasn’t always the case for the New England Patriots quarterback. The San Mateo, California native had a major growth spurt in high school and we have the pictures to prove it — click to see Tom’s transformation!
It’s hard to imagine Tom Brady, 37, as a geeky high school teenager, but HollywoodLife.com has found old school pictures of the NFL hunk, who looked like an awkward chubby cheeked kid. Not only that but we found out that bashful Tom –who ended up marrying supermodel Gisele Bundchen, 34–wasn’t scoring any touchdowns with the girls at Junipero Serra High School! Find out what he was like!
Tom Brady High School Pics — See His Evolution In Photos
To us, Tom Brady is undeniably picture perfect! But, evidently, after seeing some Kodak moments of teenage Tom it’s clear that he grew up a lot during his high school years!
“When I first laid eyes on Tom Brady he was slow as molasses and had baby fat,” reveals Tom’s former high school football coach, Tom MacKenzie, to the Daily Mail.
Tom Brady with baby fat? Are we sure this is the same Tom Brady?
And this wasn’t the only Tom Brady trivia that we couldn’t believe! Tom reportedly had zero interest in cheerleaders according to Coach MacKenzie. In retrospect, he might have just been holding out for the best catch, supermodel wife Gisele.
While it’s inevitable for any teen to experience growing pains, Tom has definitely maintained his moral compass from high school average joe to NFL superstar!
Tom Brady Gets Sick Days Before Super Bowl
As Super Bowl Sunday nears and deflate-gate chatter carries on, Coach MacKenzie continued to stress Tom’s integrity.
“I think he did a nice job of remembering where he came from. The only difference between the Tom Brady you see now and when I had him is that he was a teenager then. He’s a good player but he’s a far better person,” reflected Mr. MacKenzie according to the Daily Mail.
It’s nice to hear some positive talk about Tom who has been under major scrutiny ever since the Patriots were accused of deflating 11 out of 12 footballs in the AFC Championship game.
Meanwhile, Tom Brady, who has three Super Bowl titles underneath his belt, has another hurdle to jump before game day since he was battling a major cold as of Jan. 28.
As we previously reported, the QB sniffled for almost 45 minutes during the Super Bowl XLIX media event. Perhaps the pro football player should just relax and reminisce on his high school photos until game day on Sunday, Feb. 1. We know we will!
