In case you weren't aware already, the mother to one of the greatest football players of all time is from right here in Central Minnesota! Tom Brady's mother Galynn, is from Browerville Minnesota, about an hour northwest of St. Cloud. The small town is where a lot of my own family comes from, and my mom and Tom actually share an aunt and uncle. The whole population for the town is less than 700 people, and as a kid Tom and his three sisters would spend weeks during the summer there helping out on their grandpa Gordon's farm. Pretty cool that this big sports star has ties to Central MN!
