“Former Patriots star linebacker Andre Tippett visited New Bedford High School today to recognize NBHS Coach Mark DeBrito as the New England Patriots Coach of the Week.
Tippett, a Patriot for his entire pro career and All-Pro Football Hall of Famer, spoke to the Team. “I’ve been watching you from game 1. You’ve got the ability to do something special. Everything I am today is because of what I was able to do at the high school level.”
In addition to the special recognition, Tippett presented $1000 on behalf of the Kraft Family toward the Whaler Football Program in Coach DeBrito’s honor. Go WHALERS! #WhalerPride #WhalerSports #newenglandpatriots”-New Bedford Public Schools.
