Drew Brees surprises California teen with prosthetic leg


LINK

quote:

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees gave a Southern California teenager a life-changing surprise Friday (May 11) when he surprised Alex Ruiz with a prosthetic leg.

The former San Diego Charger was at a Del Mar flag football event when he grabbed the microphone.

"Surprise," he shouted.

Brees gave Ruiz a walking prosthetic, then said once Ruiz gets the hang of it he will receive an athletic prosthetic to begin training with.

Ruiz suffered a severe leg injury while rolling out at quarterback and being tackled during an October 2017 game. The injury led to his foot being amputated.


quote:

Brees is excited to have Ruiz walking again, but he has bigger goals for Ruiz.

"It's going to allow him to walk around, get around, and then eventually get to the point where he's able to play football again," Brees said. "Because ask him right now and there's no denying the look in his eye that that's what he wants to do."

I read this as Drew Brees surprising someone who just happens to have a prosthetic leg.

It’s humbling to see people who lose limbs and still manage to keep a positive attitude. It’s admirable.
