Derek Catsam ’93 has an update on Scott Farley’s ’03 chances of making the Patriots over at his other blog. He cites a Boston Globe article that is this week-end’s must Eph reading.

That’s because Scott Farley, who grew up in Williamstown and played for his father at Division 3 Williams College, is trying to become the lone Massachusetts native to make the Patriots roster. The odds are stacked against him — Ravens offensive tackle Ethan Brooks is the only other Williams graduate on an NFL roster. (Of course, it could help that Patriots owner Robert Kraft is an Eph.)

Really? I know that Jon Kraft ’86 (second in command of the Kraft family empire and current trustee) is an Eph along with Josh ’89. Sally ’79 and Kathy ’82 also seem like possible relatives, but I don’t know that for sure.

But the only Kraft listed in the directory of Bob’s vintage is Richard M. Kraft, Jr. ’52. I could see this as Bob’s brother, but is it the same person? Is the alumni directory wrong?
