FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – On January 21, 1994, Robert Kraft purchased the New England Patriots and announced, “My objective in buying the Patriots is to help bring a championship to New England.” Many of the team's top draft selections since that time have helped Kraft deliver on that promise and more, with three Super Bowl titles, starting with Kraft's first draft pick, Willie McGinest, in 1994. In celebration of Kraft's 20 years of ownership and reaching the AFC Championship game for the ninth time during his reign, McGinest will serve as the Patriots' honorary captain at Sunday's AFC Championship Game in Denver. McGinest, a key member of all three of the Patriots Super Bowl wins, will accompany Patriots captains to midfield for the pregame coin toss.
