How do you like him now?! Tom Brady’s got it all, but at one point in high school, the handsome New England Patriots quarterback found himself locked in a locker.
Ahead of Gisele Bundchen’s husband’s record sixth Super Bowl this weekend, the baller’s high school football coach Tom McKenzie chatted with The MMBQ’s Emily Kaplan and reminisced on what may be Brady’s only nerd-like moment.
“Well, one time we were at mass, and Tom was missing,” McKenzie remembered. “Nobody knew where he was, so we went looking. I investigated in the locker room, and somehow one of his teammates had managed to lock Tom in one of the lockers. Luckily I had the master key to get him out,” he added.
Considering he’s Tom Brady and he looked pretty much the same in high school, his former Junipero Serra High coach added the prank wasn’t mean-spirited. “I think they just wanted Tom to get in trouble, for once,” he explained.
And just to confirm what you’ve likely always assumed, McKenzie verified Brady was equally as charming back then.
“Everything you’d imagine Tom Brady to be like in high school, he was,” McKenzie said. “An All-American boy, very well-behaved, a hard worker, great sense of humor, easygoing — the guy every mother would want her son to be.”
