As a high school senior, a Drew Brees appearance helped his school to the 1996 5A Division State Championship with a 16-0 season, their only undefeated season to date. As a result, Brees was named Class 5A’s most valuable offensive player that year.
Brees also had a stellar career in college, where he led the Purdue Boilermakers to their first Rose Bowl appearance in over 25 years. He also holds the record for the longest pass in NCAA history. A four-year Drew Brees appearance for Purdue ended with Big Ten Conference records in passing yards, touchdown passes, total offensive yards, completions, and attempts. In 1999, he was a finalist for the Davey O’Brien Award as the country’s top quarterback. The following year, he won the Maxwell Award, given to the nation’s outstanding player. Although he came in fourth in Heisman Trophy voting in 1999 and third in 2000, he managed to bag the NCAA’s Today’s Top VIII Award as a member of the Class of 2001 and the Academic All-America Player of the Year.
The first Drew Brees appearance on the professional football scene was with the San Diego Chargers. He was the first pick in the second round of the 2001 NFL draft. In 2005, he was selected to the 2005 NFL Pro Bowl, thanks to his excellent 2004 season, in which he was also named NFL Comeback Player of the Year.
After suffering from an injury in the last game of the 2005 season, Brees made another comeback, but this time wearing a New Orleans Saints uniform. In 2007, he received the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award along with LaDainian Tomlinson. He was also the first runner-up for league MVP as voted by the Associated Press.
**Drew Brees Speaker**
A Drew Brees speaker appearance can have the athlete talk about his involvement in charities, particularly those engaged in Hurricane Katrian recovery. He can also talk about his charity, Brees Dream Foundation, and its efforts to rebuild and restore academic, athletic, and recreational facilities for the intellectually disabled. For this charity work, he was honored by the Krew of Bacchus as the 2007 Bacchus Grand Marshal.
