Tom Brady is Michigan’s honorary captain Saturday afternoon vs. Colorado. The former Michigan quarterback and future NFL Hall of Famer is no stranger to hanging out in his old college town; in fact, he delivered a memorable speech to Brady Hoke’s team during 2013 fall practice. Brady arrived in Ann Arbor early enough to share a wonderful moment with his son, among other things, as the pair played catch and ran routes on the iconic field. Watch Brady throw a touchdown to his son, who celebrates with, what other than, a dab in the quarterback’s Facebook post above.
