Foxborough, Mass. - Legendary Pro Football and Patriots Hall of Famer Andre Tippett will be the next speaker in The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon Speaker Series. The event will take place in the Raytheon Theater at The Hall on Friday, July 24 at 6:30 p.m.
Always a fan favorite, Tippett played linebacker for the Patriots from 1982-1993 and was selected to five Pro Bowls during his celebrated career. From 1984-85, he recorded the highest two-season sack total by a linebacker in NFL history, totaling 35.0 sacks over the two seasons. Tippett currently holds the Patriots' franchise record with 100 career sacks, and owns the top three single-season sack performances in Patriots history (18.5 in 1984, 16.5 in 1985 and 12.5 in 1987).
After retiring from the playing field, Tippett served as the Assistant Director of Pro Scouting for the Patriots, and currently works as the New England Patriots Executive Director of Community Affairs. He was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 1999, and received the ultimate honor of being elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008. Tippett will address attendees in the Raytheon Theater about his long career with the New England Patriots and his Hall of Fame induction, as well as take questions from the audience.
