Saints News, 12/1/15: Delvin Breaux Selected as Saints’ 2015 Ed Block Courage Award Winner

New, comments

From The Advocate: “It’s pretty cool because these guys see me every day and know my personality,” Breaux said. “I’m just blessed that they picked me to win the award. It means a lot. It’s an awesome award.” Breaux, who was forced to give up a scholarship to LSU because of the injury, then fought his way back through semipro football, arena league ball with the New Orleans Voodoo and finally the CFL before signing with the Saints in the offseason.
