New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has led his team to a record five Super Bowl victories, and on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, he is poised to set a new record of six. And, given that this 41-year-old football player wants to keep playing until he’s 45, he may set a few more Super Bowl records before he calls it quits.
In addition to winning five Super Bowls, Brady has racked up numerous other notable records, including:
- Most Super Bowl passing yards (2,576)
- Most Super Bowl touchdown passes (18)
- Most Super Bowl MVPs (4)
- Most Super Bowl appearances (9)
- Most passing yards in the regular season and playoffs (81,431)
In addition to being perhaps the greatest football player of all time — certainly the greatest quarterback — Brady is a remarkably effective leader. Here are seven leadership traits that have made him so successful in his long and fabled career.
