    Tom Brady named AFC Offensive Player of Month

    Remember all that talk at the end of September that the Patriots were in deep trouble at 2-2 and Tom Brady was not the quarterback he once was? Seems like Tom took it personally because he went out and had a spectacular October – and earned AFC Offensive Player of the Month honors for that month.

This year the Yachtsmen (11-1-2) enter as the second seed and want to prove the program that won nine Class B state championships from 2000-2012 (including 2012) can compete in any tournament.
