Throwback Thursday: Check Out Early Tom Brady Coverage From Local Boston TelevisionGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

On April 16th 2000, the New England sports scene and Patriots franchise was forever, albeit-unknowingly changed forever.

With the 199th pick overall in that years draft, the Patriots selected quarterback Tom Brady out of the University of Michigan. You know the rest of the story from there.

On Twitter this week, WBZ-TV Boston’s Executive Producer Jim Harrington shared some classic footage over the course of 2000 and 2001 that covered Tom Brady’s rise to an NFL roster spot.

The highlight reel starts with Brady’s drafting and ends with news of him making the final roster in 2001.

Take a look below at the first times WBZ’s sportscaster’s referenced Tom Brady on air.
