Gleason’s Thoughts on Texans Game

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 09/27/2011 – 2:10 pm

Former Saints Safety Steve Gleason served as honorary captain for the Saints-Texans game on Sunday.  He led the pregame chant.

Gleason has been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS is a rare terminal disease that damages the nerves that control voluntary muscle movement.

“I’m fortunate because I am loved by my wife and family; boys like Will Smith and Drew Brees are powerful support, and the 75,000 in the crowd are on my team,” – said Gleason.

    What a wonderful man. He made a significant contribution to our city and to your team when New Orleans really needed something good to happen. I would love to she him lead the team in the chant as long as he can walk. Lets be an inspiration to him likehe was to all of us. Who else to guide him out evey game as our team captain but Drew Breese. An inspiration to everyone!. Lets make his out Team Captain for the entire season. This could be his last year and he can go out doing what he enjoyed best– being a Saint!
