As a Northern California native
... wide receiver Julian Edelman grew up an undersized quarterback with pure athleticism and unparallelled competitive drive. The two time Super Bowl Champion has humble beginnings at the community College of San Mateo. In his one season with the Bulldogs, Julian secured a school record in rushing and a reputation that would take him to Kent State University. While a three-year starter at Kent State, his performance was not enough to earn an invitation the NFL combine. Competing in Pro Day, his short shuttle run was .02 seconds faster than any performance at the combine.

Stepping up to fill roster needs due to injury, Edelman became the first rookie Patriot in franchise history to catch two touchdowns in a postseason game. Continually progressing throughout his career, Edelman was the leading receiver in his first Super Bowl victory in 2014. Julian’s Super Bowl success continued in 2016 with the pinnacle “greatest catch in Super Bowl history.
