MIAMI (BVM) – Teddy Bridgewater might be in the heart of the NFL season, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t available to help out his former high school on the sidelines of its Thursday night game.

Bridgewater, who once starred at Miami Northwestern Senior High School, made the most of his return home, featuring as a coaching assistant for his former high school. Following his free agent deal this offseason with the Miami Dolphins, Bridgewater now has the chance to be back in the area during the NFL season, something that hasn’t been possible during his previous time in the league. Although Northwestern would come up short in its matchup Thursday against Columbus, 23-19, the team has gotten off to a solid start sitting at 3-2 on the year.

Bridgewater was once a four-star recruit in the Class of 2011 coming out of Northwestern Senior High before taking his talents to Louisville following his prep career.

After taking over the starting quarterback position his sophomore year, Bridgewater helped the team to a state title game appearance after a 13-3 season. As a junior, the Miami native passed for 2,546 yards and 32 touchdowns, while rushing for 379 yards and five touchdowns. Although his senior season would see him in and out of the lineup following a medial collateral ligament injury, Bridgewater still helped the Bulls to a 9-3 record behind his 2,606 passing yards and 22 touchdowns.

The one-time NFL Pro Bowler signed on with the Dolphins on a one-year contract worth up to $10 million back in March. After stints with the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos, Bridgewater has returned to the backup quarterback role. After a torn ACL sidelined him before the start of the 2016 season, the NFL veteran has had to work his way out of the No. 2 quarterback spot in many of his most recent stops. 

Although he is likely to spend the season backing up starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins have gotten off to a quick start in 2022. The team is currently 2-0 heading into its matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
