    DESCRIPTION Matt Doeden
    As quarterback of the New England Patriots, Tom Brady is the most important player on the NFL’s best team. As USA TODAY, the Nation’s No. 1 Newspaper, puts it, “Facts are facts. In winning three Super Bowls from 2001-04, among numerous other shining accomplishments, New England secured its place as the NFL's Franchise of the Decade.” With three Super Bowl rings and a rich contract, Tom is on top of the world. But most people didn’t expect Tom to be a big success in the NFL. Playing college football for the University of Michigan Wolverines, Tom sat on the bench until his junior year. After college Tom was taken by the Patriots in the 2000 NFL Draft—in the sixth round (199th overall). Expectations were low, but it didn’t take Tom long to show that he was not just good enough to be in the NFL, he was good enough to be one of the NFL’s best. Tom Brady went from a kid with an uncertain football future to one of the most celebrated quarterbacks in NFL history.

    About the Author
    Matt Doeden was born in southern Minnesota and lived parts of his childhood in Golden Valley, Minnesota, and Madison, Minnesota. He studied journalism at Mankato State University, where he worked at the college newspaper for three years. In his senior year, he served as the paper's Sports Editor, which put him in charge of the entire sports section, the sports writers, and the photographers. He covered mostly college sports, but also the Minnesota Vikings, who held training camp at MSU. His work allowed him to meet and interview people like Dennis Green, Cris Carter, Robert Smith, and more. Matt went on to work as a sports writer for the Mankato paper, and then he got a job as an editor with a small children's publisher called Capstone Press, and in 2003 he decided to start his own business as a freelance writer and editor. Since then Matt has written and edited hundreds of books. Lots of them are on high-interest topics like cars, sports, and airplanes. He also writes and edits on geography, science, and even math.
