Drew Brees speaks to student athletes at Mississippi College

News

One of the greatest QB’s of all time and NFL’s all-time leading passer Drew Brees was at Mississippi College Tuesday night as the guest speaker for their annual scholarship banquet.

“Playing for the New Orleans Saints, you don’t feel like you’re just playing for the city of New Orleans, you feel like you’ve got the whole southeast, the whole gulf coast that really claims you and you claim them.”

Of course, he was there to talk to student athletes, but we had to ask him about this year’s draft class — especially after his longtime center Max Unger retired during this offseason.

“A guy like that is hard to replace, but when you draft a guy like Eric McCoy,” Brees said. “We’ve got some other guys that will obviously be competing for that spot as well. So, excited to see how that all plays out. At the end of the day, you want depth, at every position as much as possible because you’re need everyone to make a run at it.”
