Tom Brady Named Cover Player for Backyard Football ’08
Inc. announced that Tom Brady, New England Patriots all-star quarterback
and two-time Super Bowl MVP, will be the cover athlete for Backyard Football ’08,
the newest iteration of the best-selling kid’s football game franchise. Brady
was overwhelmingly voted “favorite NFL player” in a poll of Backyard Sports
fans conducted late last year on backyardsports.com.
“I am very
excited to be part of the Backyard Football team,” said Brady. “Working with
kids is always great and representing Backyard Football is a fantastic way to
introduce the fun of the game to the next generation of fans. I especially like
seeing myself and other pro players as kids in the game—it’s really funny and
brings back great memories of playing football as a child.”
One of the
premier players in the history of football, Tom Brady has led the New England
Patriots to three Super Bowl victories and twice been named the Super Bowl MVP.
In only his second year in the league, Brady and the Patriots scored an upset
victory over the St. Louis Rams making Brady the youngest starting quarterback
ever to win the Super Bowl.
