The New England Patriots newly signed backup quarterback Matt Corral had to take the long road to get to where he is today after an altercation with NHL legend Wayne Gretzky’s son derailed his life.
During high school Corral was one of the top high school QBs in the country and destined to play for USC, but after a fateful fist fight at a basketball game, everything changed. Corral inexplicably transferred schools soon after the altercation.
That fight with Tristan Gretzky happened at Oaks Christian in Westlake Village, California, a “rich school” (per Corral) where students “flashed money” and were “never going to have to work a day in their lives.”
“That kid, his dad, went through hoops to fuck my life up,” Corral said. Eventually, it’s going to have come out.”
Wayne Gretzky sent 3 kids to the $30,000-per-year private school and reportedly raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.
Now seemingly back on track after being selected in the 3rd round of the 2022 NFL draft by the Carolina Panthers, Corral will get a new chance to compete with Bailey Zappe to back up Mac Jones with the Patriots.
