10-year-old boy wins science fair by questioning if Tom Brady is a cheater
Ace Davis entered his Lexington elementary school’s science fair with a project titled “Is Tom Brady A Cheater?” The premise of the project stemmed from the infamous “Deflategate,” the scandal triggered by Brady using underinflated footballs during the 2015 AFC championship game. Oh, and Davis “hates” the 41-year-old quarterback.
The kid, who also happens to be a quarterback, outlined the project on a classic folding cardboard poster mount highlighting his work.
Davis hypothesized “through various testing measures of different weights (psi-pounds per square inch) of footballs, we should find that the underinflated footballs provide a competitive advantage in a game.”
With help from mom and his sister, Davis and crew inflated footballs at varying weights and tossed them around in their yard, recording the average distance of three throws.
Davis concluded that “the Patriots were found guilty of doctoring footballs, thus losing $1,000,000 and future draft picks. Tom Brady is indeed a cheater.”
Speaking with NFL Draft Diamonds, the young quarterback explained how he came up with the idea for his project.
“Because I hate Tom Brady,” Davis said. “He’s been accused of cheating before, I want him caught.”
Brady was ultimately suspended four games in 2016 for his role in a case that climbed all the way to a U.S. federal appeals court.
Davis also has a message for the Super Bowl-bound quarterback.
“Gimme some of your money, you don’t deserve it,” the kid told the sports website.
The project earned Davis a trip to the district science fair competition next month.
Brady and Patriots will face the Los Angeles Rams next week for the NFL title.
