After a wild Thursday Night victory over the Colts, the Patriots earned a cherished few days to relax over the weekend, and while for some, that meant lounging around the house or spending time with their families, others took the time off to watch even football.
With college football in full swing, guys took trips back to their alma maters all across the country, and as they walked through their former locker rooms, shaking hands with former coaches and teammates, the Patriots were welcomed back with open arms.
Deatrich Wise and Trey Flowers paid a visit to the University of Arkansas, while James White headed back to Wisconsin, where he recorded a shout-out video to fans. Stephon Gilmore was honored with a round of thunderous applause at University of South Carolina, and Isaiah Wynn had the honor of calling the Dawgs at Georgia.
No matter where football takes each player, it is for certain that they will never forget where they started, and these colleges and universities will surely be cheering them on along the way.
