For the die-hard football fans, this may be a video that you’ve seen recently as Drew Brees made big news at the end of the regular season. Mr. Brees broke the single season passing yard record held by the great Dan Marino in 15 games this year!……He was able to pad this statistic with another great game the following week to end a magnificant year in which he showed what hard work, determination, and a never ending thirst for greatness can achieve.
Most of us are well aware of professional athlete’s in this country and the stigma that they have for enormous ego’s. Fortunately, there are athlete’s like Mr. Brees that show the good side of athletic competition and are a role model for the young men and women of this country looking to model their behavior on and off the playing field. I chose this video for the weekly motivation this week because it shows the depth of Drew’s character that he would talk about the people who helped him get this record and not how he alone was able to achieve such a remarkable season. In times of triumph it is very easy to get caught in the middle of everyone talking about your greatness but it is a testament to see Drew give credit to the people behind the scenes who have helped him along the way! Thanks Drew for motivating us to become better people.———-> R’s
