Former Boston Red Sox star, Kevin Youkilis, was honored last Thursday night as one of this year’s Red Sox Hall of Fame inductees.

While the night was about celebrating his accomplishments, reporters weren’t afraid to squeeze in some questions about Youkilis’ superstar brother-in-law whose name happens to be Tom Brady. Brady’s sister Julie is married to Youkilis.

When asked about all drama surrounding his brother-in-law’s absence from the New England Patriots’ OTAs, Youkilis says he hasn’t been following.

"I don’t even know, like honestly, I have no idea what’s going on," Youk said. "Like to be honest. I’ve been so bogged down with the brewery [I own in California] that I haven’t even watched football yet. It’s too early, right? To worry about football? I guess here in New England it’s always a topic of conversation. Everything will work out. I think Tom knows what he’s doing and he’s going to get out there and who knows, he might lead you to another Super Bowl. I mean, that’ might be an odd thing to say, right, this early?”

"Tom is a competitor and he’s going to go out there and play as hard as he can every single time he gets out there. He’s going to be the most prepared guy out there on the field, I can tell you that much."
