Perseverance, Faith and Football: Delvin Breaux Remains Unbreauxken
Play • 12 min

Today's episode is all about overcoming the odds. Delvin Breaux tried to commit suicide at age 9 to escape an abusive home, only to break the C4, C5 and C6 vertebrae in his neck about nine years later.

But adversity was no match for Breaux. He worked hard, believed in himself and made it to the NFL in 2015, making an instant impact as the New Orleans Saints' Ed Block Courage Award winner and a fan favorite. Now he’s written a brand new autobiography, Unbreauxken, chronicling his own inspiring journey through unthinkable pain to accomplish his goals.


-Why Delvin Breaux wanted to communicate his story in a book to empower others through their struggles

-How Breaux’s faith grounds him to this day 

-Delvin Breaux’s favorite career moment with the New Orleans Saints (hint: it has nothing to do with the football field and everything to do with people)

-Breaux’s thoughts on the Saints’ defense and how they were key to the team’s success in 2020
