Serra High School in San Mateo, California, is where it all started for Hall of Famer Tom Brady, and the school just unearthed Brady’s first media interview from 1994 and posted it to Twitter.
Brady, the 6th ranked California high school quarterback at the time, was interviewed by fellow all-time great Dan Fouts for a Bay Area high school stars segment, and it’s uncanny how similar high school Brady sounds compared to the 2017 version who just won his fifth Super Bowl. The unshakable confidence is there, and he fields the questions like a grown man trapped in a kid’s body. It’s bizarre.
Brady tells Fouts his biggest asset is his arm strength, and his biggest weakness is his speed, which he intends to improve through hard work. Well, that didn’t happen, but the rest turned out okay.
Even in 1994, teen Brady definitely had “it,” even if everyone couldn’t see it.
