It turns out we didn’t need the NFL or the long, drawn-out process known as “Deflategate” to determine that Tom Brady is a cheater.
Ten-year-old Ace Davis of Lexington, Kentucky, did that himself with his winning science project.
Ace constructed his science project around all of the various controversies and scandals involving Brady and the New England Patriots to prove once and for all that Brady is a cheater.
His father, Christopher Davis, shared the project in a Facebook post last week.
The post went viral and has been picked up by outlets such as Yahoo, USA Today and Sporting News.
Ace’s project explained the NFL regulations on properly inflated footballs and how Brady was in violation of that rule in the 2015 AFC championship game.
The youngster went next-level with his research and demonstrated how underinflated footballs provide an unfair advantage. Ace, his mom and his sister all threw footballs of various inflation levels and determined that underinflated footballs travel farther than those of normal inflation.
The judges of the science fair at Millcreek Elementary were apparently convinced, as Ace won his science fair.
“He won the science fair and is moving on to district,” Christopher Davis said in his Facebook post.
Brady isn’t the only Patriot whom Ace called out. He also told Draft Diamonds that Julian Edelman “takes steroids” in reference to the wide receiver’s PED suspension to start the 2018 season.
Ace said his favorite football player is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston, but he’ll be a Los Angeles Rams fan come Super Bowl Sunday. He even offered a prediction.
“Julian Edelman pushes everyone around, (Patriots tight end Rob) Gronkowski gets shut down, (Rams running back) Gurley runs for 2 touchdowns, Brady plays terrible – three interceptions, Rams win 30-14,” the youngster said.
If there is one thing that Ace can appreciate about Brady, it is his winning ways. When asked about winning the science fair and going off to the state competition, Ace had a classic response:
“Yep and I’m gonna win that too.”
