Drew Brees was raised in Dallas, Texas and, fittingly, was named after a Dallas Cowboys football player. He came from an athletic family, with his uncle having been a starting quarterback for the Texas Longhorns' team, and led his Westlake High School football team to a state championship. In college he played for the Purdue Boilermakers football team while earning his bachelor's in Industrial Management. By the time he graduated in 2000, he had won the Maxwell Award and the Academic All-America Player of the Year Award. Brees decided to continue his education even after being drafted by the San Diego Chargers; he received his degree in NFL Business Management and Entrepreneurship from Stanford in 2008. Currently he plays for the New Orleans Saints and has been named NFL Man of the Year, Comeback Player of the Year, Super Bowl XLIV Champion, and Most Valuable Player.
