Born on Aug. 3, 1977, in San Mateo, California, U.S., Brady showed exceptional skill at both football and baseball at Junipero Serra High School. After graduating in 1995, he played for his college team – the Michigan Wolverines – for whom he was back-up in the first two seasons. That changed in the 1998 and 1999 seasons, when he started every game and threw 350 passes for 2,636 yards. In his final season, he helped lead his team to an Orange Bowl win.
