Super Bowl XXXVI champ and New England Patriots Hall of Famer Drew Bledsoe will be signing jerseys, replica helmets, mini helmets and footballs at a private event in November!
Bledsoe was selected as the No.1 overall pick in the 1993 NFL Draft by the Patriots after record-setting years at his time as the quarterback of the Washington State Cougars football team. Bledsoe broke the school record for single-game passing yards (476), single-season pass completions (241), and single-season passing yards (3,946). He was also the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Year in 1992.
Bledsoe became the Patriots starting quarterback immediately after the NFL Draft and helped the team improve from two wins to five in his first season. In his second season with the team, Bledsoe led the Patriots to a 10-6 record and a playoffs appearance.
The Patriots and Bledsoe would make a Super Bowl run in 1996 as Bledsoe became one of the league's best quarterbacks. Ultimately the Patriots would fall short in Super Bowl XXXI but Bledsoe's play helped the Patriots franchise turn around from their perennial losing seasons to one of the best in the AFC.
For his help with turning the franchise around along with becoming one of the best quarterbacks during his time in the NFL, Bledsoe was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2011.
