Team sports such as football were created to condition the body and entertain masses but also to encourage team work and fraternity. By this reasoning most of the stories that come out, talk about self improvement and overcoming adversities and that is actually part of the Hernandez’s story. For those who don’t know, Aaron Hernandez is a ex New England Patriot tight end whom is currently in the final stages of a trial were he is a murder suspect. The wagering industry has been witness firsthand to the developing story and agents as well as sportbooks are waiting for the jury’s decision to this sad case.
Young Life and College Years
After having his father pass away at an early age and been rebellious for some time following his death, Aaron started playing football. Bristol Central High School in Bristol, Connecticut his birth place saw him earn Connecticut’s Gatorade Football Player of the Year as a senior. This because of his merits both on the offense as well as on defense.
Almost becoming part of the UConn Huskies, Hernandez ultimately decided to enroll with Urban Myers Florida Gators football team from 2007 to 2009. As a freshman he did not really show his potential is non impressive numbers in the few games he played. His numbers would go on a rise as a sophomore where is lead his team in receiving yards to help them win their second BCS championship in three seasons. His Junior year saw him earn the John Mackey Award given to the nation’s best tight end. He was also part of the First-team All-American by the Associated Press and was a First-team All-Southeastern Conference selection.
NFL and his Legal Problems
Drafted in the fourth round (113th overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft, Hernandez joined the New England Patriots. He was drafted after the Patriots drafted fellow tight end Rob Gronkowski. They teamed up in 2012 were they were the first pair of tight ends in NFL history to score at least five touchdowns each, in consecutive seasons, for the same team. His numbers during his three years tenure with the Pats were great and he even played in Super Bowl XLVI were the Patriots lost the game to the New York Giants 17-21.
