Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe reported on Tuesday that upon entering the locker room, Tedy Bruschi’s locker is still intact and still has his belongings in it.
No real surprise I guess, considering he’ll probably take some time as he transitions to retirement. However, one point I found pretty fascinating in that post was the fact that defensive lineman Marquise Hill still holds a presence in the locker room.
According to Reiss, following his death the Patriots left his locker intact throughout the entire season that year. Apparently they now have a case dedicated to Hill, including his jersey and various pictures of him, which was erected in the corner of the locker room.
We already knew this was a class organization. But the fact they did that for Hill is something that definitely caught my attention. It’s good to see his memory lives on among a lot of guys who I’m sure probably still miss him.
