Patriots' defenisve lineman Kyle Love was honored in his Georgia hometown on Wednesday, having his No. 72 jersey retired at North Clayton High.

It was also declared Kyle Love Day in Clayton County.

In front of a packed house at his alma mater's gym, politicians, teachers and former coaches all lauded Love, who went from North Clayton to Mississippi State.

Undrafted in 2010, Love signed with the Patriots and played in nine games as a rookie; last season, he made great strides, playing in all 16 regular-season games with 13 starts. He also started all three of New England's playoff games.
