6. A True Leader
If it came down to someone specifically leading my team, I would want it to be New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees.
When you think of teams as they prepare for games during a typical NFL season, what is something players do to get ready? If you guessed players get into groups for pre-game chants, you’re correct! Typically players, especially defensive players, get into various groups and perform pre-game chants to rally athletes and psych up mentalities before the game.
Now unlike most teams, the New Orleans Saints don’t have any defensive players taking the stands leading the groups. Their leader, getting this team ready, is none other than Drew Brees. Although as it may come to a surprise for others, it isn’t uncommon for the New Orleans Saints.
Leading pre-game huddles is a perfect example of why Drew Brees is a great leader. To take the task of leading the entire New Orleans Saints team in unison takes heart and courage. I’m sure not many athletes would be up for the daunting task, but Drew Brees handles it with ease. At the end of the day, all that can be said is Drew Brees is a natural, born leader, and that’s perfectly fine for the Saints.
Although it does require some responsibility and leadership playing the role of the quarterback on a professional NFL team, Drew Brees takes it above and beyond. Drew Brees is ALWAYS there, pumping up the athletes before the game starts, giving an inspirational message before kickoff. When it comes down to it Drew Brees embodies the New Orleans Saints and its message wholeheartedly.
Drew Brees has style and class like no other. Although he may not be the tallest on this New Orleans Saints team, his leadership, and how he represents himself on this team stands taller than even the biggest buildings in Louisiana.
