Fan favorite Tedy Bruschi was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame along with “the voice” the Pats, Gil Santos.

Bruschi spent his entire 13-year career with the Pats.  He said, “The goal on the teams that I played, the red jacket was never the goal.  Free hats and T-shirts were.  Free hats and T-shirts that said you did something.  That said you won an AFC East Championship, or a Conference Championship.  And hopefully you got that third set, that free hat and T-shirt that said World Champion.  And we got to do that three times.”

Gil Santos was once a sportscast at ABC6.  He went on to call Patriots games on the radio for 36-years. Gil said, “Today, quite frankly, is the high point of my broadcast career of more than 50-years, to be named to the Patriots Hall of Fame.  Let me assure you it was never job.  It was an honor, it was a privilege and I'm delighted to be able to do it all those years.”
