ATTLEBORO, MASS. (WHDH) — It’s been more than a decade since New England Patriots greats Tedy Bruschi and Logan Mankins fought for the Pats — and now their sons are making their names as captains of Bishop Feehan High’s varsity football team School.
Dante Bruschi and Case Mankins are leaders on and off the field. Bishop Feehan head football coach Bryan Pinabell called the “setbacks” and “old school players” who were “tremendous leaders”.
And the two players say their fathers have different approaches.
Mankins says his father doesn’t often talk to him about football, although he occasionally gives him tips while he’s going over the game tape. Bruschi, meanwhile, has his dad Tedy as the team’s defensive coordinator, who says he’s “trained” all the time.
Both players said they never felt overshadowed by their fathers and were encouraged to build their own football legacies, be themselves and play hard.
