The Early Years

Born on May 22, 1986, in Redwood City, California, Julian Edelman's passion for football ignited at a young age. His father, Frank Edelman, was a mechanic and his mother, Angie Edelman, worked as a secretary. Despite facing financial difficulties, they always supported Julian's dreams and encouraged him to never give up.

Edelman's relentless spirit began to shine during his high school years. Despite being undersized at only 5'10", he showed outstanding athleticism, excelling not only on the football field but also in baseball and basketball. His determination and incredible work ethic caught the attention of college scouts.

College and Draft Day

Edelman went on to attend the College of San Mateo, where he continued to impress. In 2006, he had a breakout season, earning an All-American honor and catching the attention of scouts from top-tier colleges.

However, his college journey wasn't without obstacles. After transferring to Kent State University, Edelman faced fierce competition for the quarterback position. Determined to make an impact on the field, he embraced the challenge and proposed a position change to wide receiver, despite having no prior experience in that role.

Edelman's relentless work ethic and determination paid off. He quickly adapted to his new position, showcasing his phenomenal athleticism and catching abilities. In his senior year, he set multiple records in the Mid-American Conference and earned the conference's Offensive Player of the Year award.

Although Edelman's college career was a success, his NFL dreams were still uncertain. He was not heavily scouted by NFL teams, and doubts about his size and lack of experience lingered. However, his unwavering faith in himself and his relentless mindset never faltered.

On April 25, 2009, Julian Edelman's dreams came true when he was selected by the New England Patriots in the seventh round of the NFL Draft.

The Underdog Rising

Edelman's journey in the NFL presented new challenges, but he approached them with the same relentless attitude that had brought him success throughout his life. Despite being initially overlooked as a late-round pick, he quickly made an impact on the field.

Throughout his career, both injuries and doubts about his abilities tested Edelman's perseverance. But through it all, he refused to let setbacks define him. His relentlessness and dedication to his craft ultimately led him to become one of the most reliable and charismatic receivers in the league.

A Super Bowl Champion and Beyond

In Super Bowl XLIX, Edelman's incredible game-saving catch in the final minutes propelled the Patriots to victory and solidified his place in NFL history. He continued to shine in subsequent seasons, earning Pro Bowl honors and helping the Patriots secure multiple Super Bowl victories.

Off the field, Edelman's charisma and dedication to his craft have made him a fan favorite. He embodies what it means to be relentless, consistently pushing himself to be the best version of himself both in sport and in life.

Julian Edelman's memoir, "Relentless," offers an intimate glimpse into the life of a man who refused to let his circumstances define his destiny. From his humble beginnings to becoming a Super Bowl champion, Edelman's story is a powerful reminder that relentless determination can overcome any obstacle in pursuit of greatness.

Through his captivating journey, Edelman inspires individuals from all walks of life to embrace their inner relentless spirit and unlock their full potential. Whether you're a football enthusiast, a sports fan, or simply someone looking for inspiration, "Relentless" is a must-read memoir that will leave you motivated and empowered.

Bill Belichick: "Julian is the epitome of competitiveness, toughness, and the great things that are possible when someone is determined to achieve their goals."

Tom Brady: "It's a privilege for me to play with someone as special as Julian."

The Super Bowl champion wide receiver for the New England Patriots shares his inspiring story of an underdog kid who was always doubted to becoming one of the most reliable and inspiring players in the NFL.

When the Patriots were down 28-3 in Super Bowl LI, there was at least one player who refused to believe they would lose: Julian Edelman. And he said so. It wasn't only because of his belief in his teammates, led by the master of the comeback, his friend and quarterback Tom Brady-or the coaching staff run by the legendary Bill Belichick. It was also because he had been counted out in most of his life and career, and he had proved them all wrong.

Whether it was in Pop Warner football, where his Redwood City, California, team won a national championship; in high school where he went from a 4'10", 95-pound freshman running back to quarterback for an undefeated Woodside High team; or college, where he rewrote records at Kent State as a dual-threat quarterback, Edelman far exceeded everyone's expectations. Everyone's expectations, that is, except his own and those of his father, who took extreme and unorthodox measures to drive Edelman to quiet the doubters with ferocious competitiveness.

When he was drafted by the Patriots in the seventh round, the 5'10" college quarterback was asked to field punts and play wide receiver, though he'd never done either. But gradually, under the tutelage of a demanding coaching staff and countless hours of off-season training with Tom Brady, he became one of the NFL's most dynamic punt returners and top receivers who can deliver in the biggest games.

Relentless is the story of Edelman's rise, and the continuing dominance of the Patriot dynasty, filled with memories of growing up with a father who was as demanding as any NFL coach, his near-constant fight to keep his intensity and competitiveness in check in high school and college, and his celebrated nine seasons with the Patriots. Julian shares insights into his relationships and rivalries, and his friendships with teammates such as Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Matt Slater, and Randy Moss. Finally, he reveals the story behind "the catch" and life on the inside of a team for the ages.

Inspiring, honest, and unapologetic, Relentless proves that the heart of a champion can never be measured.
