Heart of a Hall of Famer: Ty Law talks about having a support system, his favorite NFL moments
Law spoke about his career journey from Aliquippa, Pa., to the University of Michigan to the NFL. He also touched on the importance of having a support system when times get tough, who he looked to during these times and some of his favorite moments on the field. Those included getting welcomed to the NFL by Cam “Ironhead” Heyward, his three-interception performance against Peyton Manning and leading the Patriots to the Super Bowl. Check out the full episode here or below.
Law, a cornerback, was selected in the first round (23rd overall) of the 1995 NFL Draft out of the University of Michigan by the New England Patriots. As one of the most dynamic cornerbacks to ever play the game, he dominated the league for 15 seasons.
Law was named the NFL Alumni Defensive Back of the Year in 1998 after leading the league with nine interceptions and was named Pro Bowl Co-MVP after making his first Pro Bowl appearance that same year. A five-time Pro Bowler (1998, 2002-04, 2006), Law was also named first-team All-Pro in 1998 and 2003, elected to the Patriots Team of the Century and named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 2000s.
