Drew Brees – Saints Locker room speech
Drew Christopher Brees, New Orleans Saints quarterback broke Dan Marino’s record for most passing yards in a single season in December 2011. The Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year 2010 also set a record on a touchdown passes that season, helping his team win the division title. An emotional moment it was for Brees and he decided to thank his team-mates and support staff in the locker room.
Brees spoke to the team about how each single person associated with the him was responsible for breaking the record and how he was proud to be part of a team that worked so well. He even managed to touch their funny bone with an unintended innuendo. His line, “It’s all about you guys” showed the respect and pride he had. Probably the speech delivered to the smallest audience on this list, this was nonetheless a very moving one.
