Ty Law holds Patriot records for interceptions and Pick-6′s, including some big moments in the postseason.
In 1966 there was a popular song by The Bobby Fuller Four whose refrain endured in popular culture. The title phrase went “I fought the law and the law won.” Those words aptly described what opposing offenses did against the New England Patriots for ten years from 1995-2004. In this case the law they fought was cornerback Ty Law. And more often than not, they didn’t win. One of Law’s seminal moments came in the franchise’s first Super Bowl win following the 2001 season, so on this Super Bowl Sunday, BST&N has chosen to honor Law as the Vintage Athlete of the Month.
Law was born into the football hotbed of Beaver County Pennsylvania in the town of Aliquippa. In addition to football, he also excelled on the basketball court, where he was the MVP of the high school team. It would be the gridiron that got him to college though, and Law signed on at the University of Michigan.

Thanks a lot. All you had to do was make a routine play on a desperation heave and Ray Lewis’ farewell holy deer antler stabquest would have ended quietly three weeks ago. But noooooooo, you had to be all out of position and let Jacoby Jones get behind you to score the tying touchdown when the Broncos had the Ravens beat. I would have gladly spent the last few weeks being told...
