Get to Know Jed Collins

We asked New Orleans Saints Fullback, Jed Collins, to answer some fun questions for us.  He discusses his favorite Saints memory, what he wants to do after football, and even his favorite movie.  Check out Jed’s answers below!

What is your favorite movie?Jed Collins
One of my favorite movies growing up has to be “Major Payne.”  My brothers and I can quote that entire movie.

What is your favorite quote?
“Proud of the past, Focused on the future, Enjoying the Now”

Who was your favorite player growing up?
I always like watching Jeremy Shockey because of his personality and his hair definitely inspired me to grow mine out. But, I was more of a basketball fan growing up and my favorite was “The Admiral” David Robinson. I heard he could walk the length of a basketball court on his hands and always thought that was cool.

Favorite Saints memory?
It has to be the play Drew [Brees] broke Dan Marino’s 27 year old Season passing record. I got to be in on the play, and to be a part of history is something I will never forget.

Do you have any hobbies?
Right now, my interest is reading all kinds of things. From Biographies about great coaches like John Wooden, popular trilogy Hunger Games, to sports psychology books. My other interest is finance. I would like to become a Certified Financial Planner when I am done playing to assist players in how to handle their financial futures.

What gives you inspiration?
Right now my inspiration is to focus on the positives in life!

A huge thanks to Jed for taking the time to answer our questions!  Good luck to Jed and the rest of the New Orleans Saints as they take on the Denver Broncos this Sunday!  WHO DAT?!

Over the Edge is TODAY

This morning, at exactly 8am, brave folks started rappelling down Benson Tower in New Orleans.  Some of the first people to rappel were members of the New Orleans Saints Organization, including Rita Benson LeBlanc.  Close to 50 people will rappel today along with taking a helicopter ride to the Jefferson Parish Sheriffs Office to engage in S.W.A.T. Training.

 

Members from our staff and some of our athletes will be on hand in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome this Sunday when the Saints take on the Washington Redskins.  Be sure to cheer them on if you are there!  WHO DAT?!

As our beloved New Orleans Saints gear up to take on the New England Patriots tonight we are excited to talk about the 1st regular season and home game in which WE are featured on the ticket!

This year the Saints have decided to feature 5 nonprofit groups on the ticket and we were one of the lucky ones chosen. Our partnership with the Saints has continued to grow yearly and this year we will be at the PreSeason games promoting Over the Edge and have an ad in the Saints GameDay Magazine!

We wish the New Orleans Saints the best of luck this season! Who Dat?!
