Brees Not The Only High Character New Player

sure nice to read so many high profile positive things. more reggie gold-

..."He has more endorsements that any rookie has ever had coming into the NFL by five times already," Ornstein said. "We've probably turned down I would say 50 requests already."...

After visiting New Orleans, Bush made it clear that any organization that he works with will have to do something to rebuild the city.

He hasn't yet played a single down, but here's what he's brought to New Orleans:

> The New Orleans Police Department is receiving 12 Hummers to replace vehicles lost last August.

> On Monday, Bush will give $100,000 to the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans for Holy Trinity Church, which has 267 autistic and handicapped children. "There is no school that can handle them except Holy Trinity, but they were going to be closed," Ornstein said.

The Saints called Bush and asked him if he was interested in helping, so he got Adidas to donate $50,000. The NFL has a matching fund for any Saints players donating to the rebuilding of New Orleans.

> On Wednesday, Bush will pledge another $100,000 to re-sod Tad Gormley Stadium, a football and track facility that was flooded.

"They are going to call it the Reggie Bush Field at Tad (Gormley) Stadium," Ornstein said.

On his trip to New Orleans, Bush visited the Ninth Ward, one of the hardest-hit parts of the city.

"You can't imagine the devastation," he said. "It shows me we are playing more than football. We are going to do our part in rebuilding a great city."

See...this is a prime example of a high character athlete. Not a high character player who cant play, and not an extremely talented player who only cares about himself. He is the prototypical figure that every team would love to have.

True. I can't wait to see how much he helps this team and this city. Sure it's just football, but the city really thrives on the Saints, and I think Reggie will give them a little extra to look forward to. But I'm very impressed with his character. Proud to have him.

This is the kind of star athlete this organization needed. I've always liked this kid (though I am by no means a USC fan). He is extremely humble in all of his interviews & the 1st thing to always come out of his mouth is "I just thank God for the blessings he's gave me." No matter what happens in his rookie season, you can't help but love a guy like that. He's already done more for the N.O. area (without having played yet) than guys like Aaron Brooks did in 6 seasons!!!
