Documentary follows faith, works of former Saints quarterback Danny Wuerffel


Before the Desire Street Community Square groundbreaking ceremony officially began Saturday morning, Danny Wuerffel dug the ceremonial shovel into the earth to loosen the soil.

“Wuerffel’s Way”

WHEN: 6:30 p.m. Aug. 28 on ESPN 8 p.m. Sept. 1 on SEC Network

INFO: desirestreet.org

Quite a few people who had contributed to the project would be coming to scoop a bit of dirt.

Executive director Wuerffel has worked with Desire Street Ministries since he left behind his football career in 2002. The organization began with coaching and mentoring of young people in New Orleans’ struggling Desire public housing project, and has grown to offer a variety of social and educational services in Atlanta, Dallas, and Mobile and Montgomery, Alabama.

After winning the Heisman Trophy in 1996 while playing for the Florida Gators, Wuerffel was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 1997, played for the team until 1999, and then went on to play with the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins.

I met him at a charity golf tournament on the northshore quite a few years ago - after his playing days. He was extremely humble and soft-natured - probably too much so to be an nfl qb. Great guy.

He may not have been the leader we wanted but he represents the city of New Orleans well.

Re: Documentary follows faith, works of former Saints quarterback Danny Wuerffel

I like him.
I didnt know he still continues his association with New Orleans.
That's awesome. I knew he was a good guy. He's like Tebow without
all the haters.

question: You know the highlight they show, where his helmet is turned
sideways? I dont remember seeing that play live. Was he hurt in that?

NFL Films shows that as a "blooper," but it looks kind of scary to me.
