It was Throwback Friday for the Junipero Serra High School Facebook page.
Tom Brady’s alma mater posted what has to be the earliest media interview of the future Hall of Fame quarterback’s career. Dan Fouts, a Hall of Fame QB himself with the San Diego Chargers and now an NFL analyst with CBS, talks to a 17-year-old Brady in this feature from KPIX-TV in San Francisco in the summer of 1994. Brady was already a highly touted QB prospect as he entered his senior year at the San Mateo, Calif., high school.

It was later that year that Brady chose between football and baseball after he worked out for a couple of MLB teams that spring.
