Retired Patriot Tedy Bruschi does a lot of under-the-radar good for people in this area. And most of it goes unnoticed because he seems to prefer it that way.

He let the cat out of the bag on this one: He will be hosting his third annual SBLI Youth Football Clinic tomorrow at Gillette Stadium.

An essay contest was held, and 54 kids were selected to participate in a gameday-like experience, that will start in the Patriot locker room and include the kids being introduced over the PA and going through the tunnel the way the players do. Some of Bruschi's ex-teammates will help out with drills after that, as will a new friend of Bruschi's -- Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich.

If you guys are interested, I put together a story on the relationship between the ex-linebacker and the comebacking one as the lead to my Sunday Notes a couple weeks back. The two have bonded over some of the parallels in their returns to the field, and a friendship has grown from there.
