FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (June 1, 2011) - The New England Patriots Alumni Club (NEPAC) will host their second annual Stars and Stripers Fishing Tournament on June 4. More than a dozen former Patriots players will team with fans and take to the open water for the all-day fishing competition.

Former Patriots players in attendance will include G Joe Andruzzi, FB Patrick Pass, QB Steve Grogan, C Pete Brock, G Todd Rucci, T Max Lane and S Tim Fox. Participants will enjoy a whole day of fishing and fun in the sun with some of the most enthusiastic fishermen ever to grace the Patriots gridiron.
"This event is a great opportunity for Patriots alumni to share their love of fishing with fans that have the same passion," said Peter Brock, NEPAC president. "Not only is this a fun day, but it is one of our main fundraising activities that helps NEPAC promote and fund youth football and high school sports programs throughout the region."
