Biography:

There are few other NFL players who are more recognizable and mean more to their city than Drew Brees.  Over the last decade, Drew Brees has become one of the greatest quarterbacks in the world while also serving as the key sports figure for the once devastated city of New Orleans.  Drew began his ascent to football stardom playing for Purdue University before being drafted 32nd Overall in the 2002 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers.  He made his first Pro Bowl in 2004, but suffered a severe shoulder injury in 2005 that ultimately led him to join the New Orleans Saints.

Sports Speaker Drew became a star with the Saints, who were in desperate need of positivity after the destruction of Hurricane Katrina.  He turned the Saints into one of the NFL’s most electric offense through his precise passing attack.  In his 8 seasons with the Saints, Brees has never thrown less than 26 touchdowns or 4,000 yards in a season.  In February of 2010, the Bress led Saints won Super Bowl SLIV over the Indianapolis Colts marking the first every championship in Saints history.  Brees was named the Super XLIV MVP.  Over the course of his career, Brees has been selected to 8 Pro Bowls, 1 First-Team All-Pro, and 2 AP Offensive Player of the Year awards.  Drew is the currently holder of a multitude of NFL Passing records including most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (54) and 5,000 yard passing seasons (4).

Drew Brees has been as important as any sports figure to their community over the past decade.  Brees was a major presence in helping rebuild the morale of the city following the Hurricane Katrina tragedy and has his own charity organization called Operation Kids.  He is a spokesperson for the “It Gets Better” anti-bullying campaign, and he was chosen by Michelle Obama as a co-chair with Dominique Dawes on the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition.  Sports Illustrated also named him the 2010 “Sportsman of the Year.”
