Drew Brees

130131The throw that made Drew Brees the all time NFL passing leader. Brees Brees is known for being a great football player and charity man but these are his biggest accomplishments while doing both. He has gone through so much to get to this position in his life and I would like to share that with you.

Born January 15th 1979, Drew Brees started his life living in the capital of Texas, Austin. Growing up Drew always wanted to be a quarterback even as a 5 year old. His talent at the quarterback position led him to go to Purdue University. After his time in Purdue he attended the 2001 NFL draft where he was selected by the San Diego Chargers (now L.A Chargers) and after his time in San Diego he signed with the Saints in 2005. He married his wife Brittiney in 2003, they have had four children and they formed the Brees Dream Foundation in 2003.  As a result, I believe he is a hero because he is never selfish and is always doing things for the good.

Over the time span of Drew Brees’s life he has accomplished many things for charities and his own football career. Throughout  his 18 year career that is going strong and his awards are 2009 Super Bowl, 2009 Bert Bell award, 2006 Walter Payton award, 2004 Comeback Player of the Year, 2008 Offensive Player of the Year, 2011 Offensive Player of the Year, 11x Pro Bowler, and a 1x All Pro. His biggest accomplishment is probably raising 25 million dollars for worldwide charities that support cancer patients, provide care, education, and possibilities for the people in need. He is having one of his best seasons in the 2018-2019 season so let's see if there will be another award given to him.

Drew Brees is outstanding, terrific, and an upstander. He has accomplished so much for his foundation and his football career and his back story is also amazing. If I could describe Drew Brees in one word it would probably be….. remarkable.
