Tom Brady On The Importance of Leadership

Tom Brady - Earn It

Football Legend Tom Brady shares his uneasy experience when he was a young team player and how he earned his place.

Transcription:


"I didn't have an easy experience. I didn't have come in as a top-rated recruit. I didn't come in with the opportunity to play right away. I had to earn it. You know what the greatest honor I've ever received as a player is? In my fourth year and my fifth year, I was named team captain. That to this day is the single greatest achievement I've ever had as a football player, because the men in this room chose me to lead their team. These were my best friends. These were the guys that knew that I liked to work, that knew that I loved football, that knew that I loved to play, that knew that I wanted to be the quarterback for Michigan.

All the lessons that I learned here on State Street and in the big house, that's still what I bring to practice today. After 14 years, I love the game more than I've ever loved it. Where did I learn the love for the game? Where did I learn to practice? Where did I learn to compete? It was sitting in the same chairs that you guys are sitting in today."

Moving into a new neighborhood can be an exciting experience. But it can also be pretty daunting. After all, you can pick the house but you can't pick your neighbors.

Last month, Kelly McDuff and her fiancé Garrison bought their first home in Richardson, Texas.

Understandably she was feeling "a little nervous" about the move. Not only was it in an unfamiliar area, but it was in a completely new town.

Turns out, she needn't have worried. Because when it comes to neighbors? She hit the jackpot.
