Biography:

Sports Speaker Tedy Bruschi is a future Hall of Fame linebacker who played all 13 seasons in the NFL with the New England Patriots. Following his playing career, Tedy joined the team at ESPN as an analyst. Tedy’s story is one of bravery in the face of uncertainty after suffering a mild stroke in 2005 that would ultimately change his outlook on life.

Tedy was a standout All-American during his college days at the University of Arizona. During his 4 years he amassed a number of impressive stats including 52 career sacks, tying the NCAA D-1 record. Tedy worked hard to impress the NFL scouts and was picked by the Patriots in the 3rd round of the 1996 NFL Draft.

Sports Speaker Tedy Bruschi made an immediate impact with the Patriots. He played in every game during his rookie season. Over the next 2 seasons, Tedy continued to build on his skills as a pass rusher. 2001 was a big year for the franchise. Tedy and the Patriots brought home the team’s first Super Bowl in franchise history! He was voted defensive team captain for the following seasons after proving his ability to lead by example on and off the field.

Tedy and his fellow teammates including Tom Brady would go on to win back-to-back Super Bowls in 2003 and 2004. But in 2005, something just wasn’t right. Tedy was taken to the hospital for numbness and blurred vision and was told he had suffered a mild stroke. He sat out the season that year, taking time to heal both physically and mentally.

He came back stronger than ever in 2006 and 2007, earning the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year Award and the Ed Block Courage Award. Courage is a great attribute to describe Tedy. His courage in the face of what is certainly a challenging health scare can serve as an example for people in all walks of life. Tedy now operates his own foundation called Tedy’s Team which raises money for stroke research.
