Yes, she is related to the legendary New England Patriots quarterback. Tom Brady is her uncle. Not too shabby.
Brady, a softball star out of Oaks Christian HS, probably doesn’t get her athletic ability from him. Brady’s mother Maureen, Tom’s sister, was an All American at Fresno State in the 1990s under Hall of Fame coach Margie Wright. Maureen led the nation in wins in 1994 and helped Fresno State make the Women’s College World Series on two occasions.
You can she has one hell of arm below:

Tom might be the most famous of the Brady kids, but the bunch was actually dominated by the women of the family growing up. In addition to Maureen, their sister Nancy played softball at California and Julie, another sister, played college soccer at St. Mary’s in California.
“[My sisters] were the best athletes in my house — certainly a better athlete than I ever was,” Tom told thepostgame.com in 2012. “I just loved tagging along and living and dying with every loss they had.”
And Tom apparently keeps up to date with what his niece is doing, too. Good to see them playing dodgeball together. The family that dodgeballs together, stays together.
