Jalen Williams has been named the New Orleans local winner of the year's NFL PLAY 60 Super Kid, the NFL announced Wednesday.
"Drew Brees inspires me to be fit because he has lead the New Orleans Saints team to many victories since joining," said Williams. "I can see that the players get and give him much respect. Not only is he a great player, but he is a good person and people love his personality. Since he has become a Saint, I haven't heard any unkind words said about him. Thanks Drew for being a New Orleans Saint!"
