Drew Brees

Short bio: 

Drew Christopher Brees was born January 15, 1979 in Austin, TX. Brees played flag football in middle school and in high school he was a varsity letterman in baseball, basketball and football. Brees only began to concentrate on football when he became starting quarterback as an injury replacement. Brees had hoped follow his father and uncle's footsteps and play for the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies but was not heavily recruited despite his stellar record in High School. Instead, he only received offers from Purdue and Kentucky, ultimately choosing Purdue. He left college as one of the most-decorated players in Purdue and Big Ten history, with 2 NCAA records, 13 Big Ten Conference records and 19 Purdue University records. He remains the Big Ten Conference record-holder in virtually every passing category, including completions yards and touchdowns.

After a prolific college football career at Purdue University, he was chosen by the San Diego Chargers with the first pick in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He became starting quarterback in 2002 and making the Pro Bowl in 2004. After injuring his shoulder at the end of the 2005 season, Brees signed with the New Orleans Saints, where he met immediate success, earning seven trips to the Pro Bowl and leading the Saints to their first Super Bowl. Since joining the Saints in 2006, he has led all NFL quarterbacks in touchdowns, passing yards and 300-yard games. He was the NFL's Comeback Player of the Year in 2004, the Offensive Player of the Year in 2008 and 2011, and the MVP of Super Bowl XLIV. Sports Illustrated named Brees its 2010 Sportsman of the Year.

Brees married Brittany Dudchenko in February 2003. They met and dated while attending Purdue University. They have three sons.

I know you must get many letters just like this one that's asking for help with charity events for someone with a terminal illness. I am seeking a signed football for just an event. Our event is a glow in the dark golf tournament that is being held in honor of Christi Honea from Liberty Mississippi and Drew Breed and the New Orleans Saints is " HER TEAM " she deeply enjoys watching and supporting the Saints. I was hoping for a signed football we could raffle off to benefit her financially during this difficult time she and her family is going through. Christi is 45 years ole and has a husband and two young children -- one 5 and one 3. She has already gone through so much trying to beat this disease but she struggles with new challenges every day. She has been through a double mastectomy along with Radiation, Chemotherapy and now receiving live virus injections to help her fight for life. One of her concerns is her families financial burden of being able to bury her upon her death for she doesn't even have a life insurance policy. I could go on and on about her situation and like many others I know these stories frequent your desk. I hope and pray that you will take a few minutes from your day and offer her a signed football so that we might use it to help her and her family's financial situation. If you need any further assurance or verification that this is exactly where this item would be used for I will be glad to send you any verifying information you would need. I hope you find it in your heart to support her cause. Please feel free to contact me for any further information you should need. Please contact me via email for addresses or phone numbers.

Thank you in Advance
S. Smith

I am an American living in Singapore. I attended a charity golf event a few years back in Houston sponsored by The United Way. They had an auction to raise money and i bought an autographed football by Drew. Problem i have now is the ink has faded. I wanted to DHL the ball for a new signature and pay the return as well. Whats the chances of that.

Well said Drew - the national anthem IS a unifying moment. You are commended for putting your country first - above politics.

Appreciate the bravery of Drew in supporting the respect of anthem and flag. Too many spineless leaders in this country. Think of all the WW2 vets that volunteered to go stop Adolph Hitler. If we had let Hitler have his way, most of these protesters would have never been born. I'm sick of these liberals.

I’m a 63 y/o W/M and live in the Lake Charles area. I’m a Registered Nurse and my wife is an elementary school principal. Me and the family are all Saints fans and have been for a long time. We just watched the playoff game with Minnesota. I would like to say to you Drew Brees that it’s okay. You are truly a Saint and I respect and admire your dedication to football. A lot of players have come and gone but you have stayed true. I just wanna say to keep going as long as you can. You look great out there. You make my Sunday football a great day.
