Teddy Bridgewater of the New Orleans Saints pens a message to future athletes
The quarterback sends a word of encouragement and motivation to up-and-coming sports stars
Whether he decides to continue with the New Orleans Saints or not, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater’s future certainly will be bright. Most likely, he could be looking at an eight-figure contract even if it’s not with the Saints. Fans were thankful during last season after all the nervousness when Drew Brees had a thumb injury that was going to leave him off the field for a month or so. Bridgewater gave an impressive performance and was undefeated in that period. He acknowledges his successes in his career, but also remembers his humble origins; therefore, he decided to send an encouraging message to future athletes.
Soon free agents will sign contracts with the teams and get new agreements and in the case he follows a different path, Bridgewater dedicated a few words to the young boys out there that are struggling to make it through the days. That message he posted on his Twitter account was directed to those who live in tough neighborhoods and who perhaps have absent parents that work all day,
“To the young boy that’s afraid to read out loud in front of the class because the fear of mispronouncing word is greater than the fear of hearing gunshots throughout the night,” said part of Bridgewater’s post. The final idea he is trying to communicate in his message is that he also struggled with sports practices and even more when they were done as it was one of his only joys in the day. He wanted to let these boys know he went through the same thing, as well, and motivate them to keep going. “I believe in you,” were his closing words.
