While in attendance at one of his co-owned 4 Walk-On’s Bistreaux & Bar restaurants, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a special goal in mind.
Brees planned to spend a period of time with 10 year-old Hunter Glass from Shreveport. Glass has cerebral palsy, and it has always been his dream to meet Brees, per KSLA.com.
Brees told the young boy that he was there to meet him, which brought tears of joy to Glass. Glass received an autograph and some one-on-one time with his football icon. According to KSLA, it was “The Pay It Forward Networking” organization that made the connection between Glass and Brees a reality.
Brees’ wife Brittany was on hand at the event as well. He drew a large crowd and reportedly took time to sign autographs for other patrons of the restaurant as well.
With only one year left on his current contract, Brees addressed the media when questioned about negotiations with the team.
“I feel fine about it. I know it will happen in due time. I’m really not worried about it one bit at this point.”
Keeping it classy is definitely Brees’ style.
And after taking the extra steps to make the day of young Hunter Glass, Brees surely has gained a fan for life.
