When Drew Brees, former quarterback for the San Diego Chargers, suffered a potentially career ending injury, everyone doubted his ability to ever play professional football again.   Dropped by the Chargers, he worked harder than nnever to build himself back up and was drafted to be the quarterback of the New Orleans Saints in 2006, just one year after the city had suffered the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.  Largely written off, both the city and the quarterback began the long process of rebuilding together. 

Inspiring his city, and the nation, Brees led the Saints to Super Bowl victory in 2009, proving to the world that not only can you get up after a great and terrible fall, you can come back stronger.

(Tana Lucero, Colorado Blue Spruce Award nominee, 2014)
