‘[Jack] wants to try hard, and he never wants to disappoint his dad,’ Brady told Men’s Health in 2019. 

He continued: ‘I’d wake up early on the weekends to do stuff with my dad. That’s why I didn’t party a lot. If Dad wanted to golf, I wanted to be there with him. And if I ever missed those things, it would crush me.’ 

Despite initially assuming that his Benjamin ‘would be just like Jack’ and want to play football at his alma mater, the University of Michigan, Brady had to come to terms that he was simply not interested.
