Here are a few more highlights from Tom Brady’s five-minute Q&A with the media Friday night at Harvard:

His participation as part of the weekend of events: ‘€œIt’€™s a great event. We have much more support this year than we did last year. This is something very close to me. Katie Meade is my buddy. She is a great person, a great woman, and I think she is a great representative of Best Buddies. It’€™s good to be here with her.’€

On the workouts the team has held the last three days at BC: ‘€œIt’€™s been fun; it’€™s been fun to see a lot of the guys. I think there was a lot of good work. You see a lot of the guys who came out to support this, with Wes [Welker] and Julian [Edelman] and Nate Solder, who is a rookie. This is a great event. Tedy [Bruschi] is out here. His new nickname is Kilimanja-Bru. It’€™s been a lot of fun this week. This is a great way to cap it off.’€

On bringing the players together for workouts ‘€” did you feel obligated to do that? ‘€œNo, there were a lot of people that were instrumental in getting everybody together. We have a lot of great leaders on our team. I’€™ve been here for a long time, so as a veteran on the team, not just a quarterback, there are a lot of guys who are really working hard. That’€™s what we need.’€

On his health after January foot surgery: ‘€œI feel good, good enough to run around here and have fun. I’€™m excited for football season.’€

On the Bruins and their recent Stanley Cup run: ‘€œIt was exciting the other night. I wish we would have pulled it out. It was a bummer about the Celtics. The Red Sox had a tough four days. We have a pretty good thing going in Boston right now with our sports teams. We get such great support from our fans and from you guys who cover us and care so much about what we’€™re doing. I think it’€™s really a pleasure to play in front of people who really care.’€
