Darrelle Shavar Revis (born July 14, 1985) is an American football cornerback, who is currently a free agent.
Fans voted Law into the team’s Hall of Fame last spring, choosing him ahead of former Pats head coach Bill Parcells and corner Raymond Clayborn, who set many of the records that Law would break during his New England career.
Law will join Tedy Bruschi (2013), Troy Brown (2012) and Drew Bledsoe (2011) as the only players to be selected by the fans into the Patriots Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility.
He also completed a 39-yard pass, had a reception, and an interception in the game.

In the PIAA Class AA State Championship football game, he led Aliquippa to a come-from-behind 32–27 win over Northern Lehigh by scoring five touchdowns, including three rushing touchdowns, a punt return, and the return of a blocked Northern Lehigh field goal attempt.
