Look closely at the picture.

Do you see 80,000 NFL passing yards and a Super Bowl Ring?


Don't worry.

You are not alone.

Good thing Drew Brees always believed in himself!

He started out as a nationally ranked 12 & Under Tennis player and didn't play football until 9th grade. Check out Before he was famous


Undefeated(28-0-1, 5,000 passing yds & 50 TDs) High School State Champion in Texas = Zero in state offers

Leads Purdue to its 1st Rose Bowl appearance in 33 years = Drafted in the 2nd round -"he is too short for the NFL"

The 10 QBs Drafted before Drew


After being injured, released by the San Diego Chargers.

Drew turns a setback into a "setup" by playing for something bigger than himself.

As Always, Please Google/YouTube and do a deeper dive on Mr. Brees - his journey is worth knowing.

Greatest undrafted player ever? I'll let y'all debate that. But Kurt Warner's journey has enough twist and turns to make a Roller Coaster woozy. A lot of significant moments but living in the basement of his wife's parents, working the night shift at a grocery store and running out of money and gas with his family in the truck were huge turning points.

This video is a good overview of his career

Always Earned. Never Given

He wasn't big enough - as a High School Senior, he barely weighed 140lbs

He wasn't smart enough -he flunked a college entrance exam.

He couldn't get a chance to play -drafted in the 9th round and was cut before he threw a single pass.

When he retired, he owned every passing record in the NFL. .

If you play Quarterback, you must know the Johnny Unitas Story.


Please Google and do a deeper dive on Mr. Unitas - his journey is worth knowing.

HOF QB Kurt Warner runs an outstanding site. Using "all 22" film, Kurt provides QB analysis that will make you smarter as a player and a fan. You can find this account (@QBConfidential #STUDYBALL) on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

The twitter account may be the most current, but I find the Facebook account handy as well.

I recommend reviewing all the videos Kurt he has done not just the current ones.


Its not about D1.





Its about having 4 more years to pursue the dream

FEBRUARY Qb training
