Last week, I passed along the news that former Patriots corner back Ty Law was going to be honored as one of the all-time greats in Boston sports when he was designated to receive the Football Legacy Award in Boston at “The Tradition” awards ceremony. The ceremony will take place on Tuesday, June 28, but Law was in-town on Monday and sat down with Brian Lowe from Patriots Today, the online video news program on the Patriots’ official website. Law was thankful for the opportunity in New England and proud of taking three out of four championships home to the Patriots. Law also noted that it was he who contacted Patriots owner Robert Kraft, asking him to present Law at the ceremony. You can see the entire video interview by clicking HERE.
Monday was spent with folks passing along their favorite Ty Law memories.
- Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston passed along some of his favorite Law moments, including from his time working for Patriots Football Weekly.
- This post shares various reader memories of the Patriot corner back.
- This video has another former Patriot, Tedy Bruschi, sharing some of his favorite Ty Law memories. Bruschi noted that Law kept it light, and at times would not get the play call in the huddle. He would simply ask Bruschi, “Man or zone?” and that was all Ty needed. Interesting stuff.
- My personal favorite Ty Law moment, aside from his interception of Kurt Warner in the Patriots’ first Super Bowl victory, was his three-pick effort against Peyton Manning in the AFC Championship Game prior to the Pats’ second Super Bowl championship. Here’s the stat of the game: Marvin Harrison, 3 catches for 19 yards; Ty Law, 3 interceptions for 26 yards.
