Tom Brady Early Life
Tom Brady was born on August 3, 1977, into a sports-loving family in San Mateo, California. Galynn and Thomas Brady’s fourth kid and lone son are both named Brady. Nancy, Julie, and Maureen, his three older sisters, are all women. His upbringing was Catholic.
He went to San Francisco 49ers games as a child with his family. Joe Montana was a favourite of his. He grew up a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics. When he was younger, Tony Graziani, a future NFL quarterback, served as his camp counsellor and taught him how to throw the football at the College of San Mateo.
Brady played football, baseball, and basketball while attending Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, where he graduated in 1995. During his junior year, he started at quarterback for his high school squad. He created highlight tapes during his senior year and sent them to institutions that the candidates wanted to attend.
The process of recruiting athletes to colleges was substantially different in the middle of the 1990s. Brady would be a four-star recruit if he were a high school senior today. In 1995, these rankings were not frequently used. Brady whittled down his list of potential colleges to Cal,
UCLA, USC, Michigan, and Illinois. The Montreal Expos selected Brady in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft as well. Brady committed to the University of Michigan to play college football.
Brady spent his first two years of college as the backup quarterback to future NFL quarterback Brian Griese. Brady had a hard time getting playing time. In the end, he began each game during the 1998 and 1999 seasons. He established new Wolverine marks for the most throw attempts and completions in a season during his first full season as the starting quarterback. Brady started 25 games,
20 of which Michigan won. Despite an outstanding college career, he was not selected in the first round of the draught. The New England Patriots selected Brady with the 199th choice in the sixth round of the 2000 draught.

In December 2006, Brady started seeing Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen. On a blind date, a mutual acquaintance set them up.

He follows the TB12 Method, a very tight diet, along with his family. He advises people to consume 1/32 of their body weight in water each day. The majority of fruits, coffee, Gatorade, white sugar or flour, gluten, dairy, soda, cereal, white rice, potatoes, and bread are foods he avoids. He also avoids most mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.
Brady earns $30 million in pay every year. While Tom was playing for the Patriots from 2000 to 2019, he made $230 million in his career only from his salary. He made an additional $100 million through endorsements within the same time period. Gisele Bündchen’s career earnings were close to $500 million during that time.

In May 2014, Dr. Dre bought the property from them for a cool $50 million. Not a bad way to make $21 million.
