Halloween Costume of JFK Helped Bill Belichick Earn First of Many Awards

Bill Belichick has twice been named the NFL's Coach of the Year. He was named to the league's All-Decade Team. He's won three Super Bowls as a head coach and two as an assistant.

He's clearly decorated in the world of football, but it doesn't end there.

When asked Friday what his best Halloween costume was, the coach went all the way back to the early '60s.

"I kind of lucked into it — it was John Kennedy," he said. "It was easy — you dress up and you put on the mask. But it was during the Cuban Missile Crisis as it turned out. I think I won the prize there. Everybody was really impressed that the president was able to break away from the Cuban Missile Crisis to attend a Halloween party — a school Halloween party.

"Those were the days."

Is anybody else having trouble picturing a 10-year-old Belichick at a Halloween party?
