After breaking Peyton Manning's all-time record for passing yardage during Monday night’s game against the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees stole the show not for his sportsmanship, but for his godly words to his children just after the game. Hear his full comments in the video at the end of this article.
Following the record-breaking game, Brees was captured on video speaking to his young children. “What has resonated so much with the folks watching was what you said to your kids,” ESPN reporter Lisa Salters said to Brees, asking what was said.
“Well it’s probably what I tell them every night before they go to bed,” Brees answered, crying joyful tears, "which is you can accomplish anything in life you’re willing to work for. Nothing’s given, everything’s earned. God has equipped us for great works...I tell them that every night.”
