The Career of Robert Kraft

Robert Kraft has become known as the man behind all the success the New England Patriots have had over the years but under all that facade is just a regular guy who was able to make all his dreams come true. He was born & raised in brook line, a small suburb on the out skirts of Boston. His dad manufactured dresses in Chinatown & wanted his son to be a rabbi when he grew up. But of course, he had a few other things on his mind.

Ever since he was just in the 3rd grade, he had been a big fan of the New England Patriots & this is why it had always been a dream of his to be their owner one of these days. After a successful run in high school he opted to matriculate at Columbia university on a full ride where he played for their football team as well as tennis. It was here that he met the woman who would one day become his wife in a small deli in 1962.

After graduating, Robert Kraft went on to pursue an MBA from one of the most famous schools in the world, Harvard. As soon as he was done with all of his academic work opted to purchase a lot of the local sports teams but this did not go all that well for him. But it was not long before he caught wind of the fact that the patriots were up for sale & he knew it was the opportunity he was looking for.

So, Kraft bought them for more than $75 million which was the most anyone had paid for any of the NFL teams at that moment. Kraft resides with his four sons in a small town not too far from Boston, MA. Go here for additional information.
