New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may be banned from NFL football fields for the month of September, but it didn’t mean he couldn’t go back to college.

On Saturday, Brady was an honorary team captain for his alma mater University of Michigan’s game against the University of Colorado for which he played from 1995-1999.

Brady posted to Facebook this video of himself playing catch with his son Ben, who promptly “dabs” after catching a touchdown pass from his father.

By gametime, Brady also got some throws in with Michigan head coach and former NFL quarterback Jim Harbaugh.

As part of his role as honorary captain, Brady walked out to the field for the games opening coin toss to a loud ovation from The Big House crowd.

The University of Michigan won a thriller over Colorado with Brady in attendance by a final score of 45-28. Harbaugh shared his thoughts on playing catch with Brady following the game at his press conference.
