ABOUT AARON HERNANDEZ: Aaron Hernandez grew up and played high school football in Bristol, Connecticut. In 2006 he amassed 1,807 receiving yards, 24 touchdown catches and set a state record of 376 receiving yards in one game, a number that also marks the seventh best game total in high school history.  After a brilliant college career playing tight end for the Florida Gators, the New England Patriots drafted Hernandez in the fourth round. In his first year with the team he caught 45 passes for 563 total yards and 6 touchdowns.  This most recent season saw the athletic tight end grab 79 catches to go along with 1,473 yards and 7 touchdowns.  It was this 2011-2012 season that he and fellow Patriot, Rob Gronkowski, combined for one of the most jaw dropping offensive seasons ever produced by two tight end teammates in history with well over 2,000 combined receiving yards, 24 total touchdowns and a whopping 169 receptions.
ABOUT NIKO KOUTOUVIDES: A Plainville, Connecticut native, Niko Koutouvides went on to play for the Purdue Boilermakers after a very impressive high school career.  As a linebacker, his 296 tackles, five interceptions, four sacks and four fumble recoveries in his 3 years at Purdue were more than enough to get the attention of the Seattle Seahawks.  After a few stops across the league, the Patriots acquired Koutouvides in August of 2011 and he became a staple on special teams throughout the year and in the post-season.
