The long-time Saints punter Thomas Morestead has an announcement: he’s preparing a book to be distrusted in the near future.
Saints’ Thomas Morstead delivered a big announcement on Tuesday afternoon, his new book titled The Middle School Rules of Thomas Morstead is being prepared to be distributed to the public on June 2, 2020.
The publication of his book is a big deal to the Saints punter as it highlights pivotal moments throughout his life including his cultural roots, how he handled being bullied due to his appearance, and how he dealt with the adversity of not making his high school soccer varsity team.
All those moments created the Pro Bowl punter into who he is today.
Morstead strives to highlight the difficult moments throughout his life that helped mold him into the man he has become. Morstead mentioned that it was “crazy” getting to flip through the pages of his book and how it was “really cool” to see his son Maxwell read through the entire book.
Morstead is excited to release his book to the public on June 2nd and the 176-page book he hopes will be used as a great resource for teens and young adults who may be going through some hardships.
The description of the book reads: “Before he earned a Super Bowl ring and started a foundation, he had to survive middle school.” For many of the troubled teens in the world, this book serves as an answer to what perseverance can lead to.
Here’s how Morstead gave us the announcement. ESPN’s Mike Triplett also gave us a solid article on how Morstead starred in the book.
Morstead, 34, has been a member of the New Orleans Saints since he was selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
Morstead has been a rock for the Saints’ special teams unit. Although being selected for just one Pro Bowl, Morstead has played in all 16 games of every season he’s been in the Big Easy, his only NFL home.
