In a phone interview during ESPN’s radio show, “Mike & Mike,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady discussed training camp, which opens next week, and also voiced his support for The V Foundation, in honor of the late Jim Valvano.

On the Foundation, Brady said:

"It's a fight we've all been involved in, and what The V Foundation has done over the years -- the motto was always 'Don't give up, don't ever give up.' That's a great lesson for all of us," Brady said on the program. "Coach [Jim] Valvano was a legendary coach, a great commentator. I don't think anyone who has watched ESPN over the years has not seen the clip of him saying that at the ESPYS. He was a special person and it's great that we can create awareness to hopefully continue to find donations and more money that goes to research to hopefully put an end to this once and for all."

Brady sounded just as passionate about training camp, saying that he’s looking forward to seeing the progress of the younger players and that it will be nice to get back on the field.

"I'm really excited for it. I think this is a great time of year for me and for my other teammates to see where we're at; we're going to get to this camp and figure out where our conditioning is at and how prepared we are to start playing. The games happen pretty quickly. It's one step in a long journey over the course of the season that you have to take. There is no skipping it. There is no shortcuts. Now it's time to get back to work."
