Bush and Colston headline stellar Saints Hall of Fame Class of 2019

Marques Colston and Reggie Bush traveled divergent paths to the New Orleans Saints, arriving in the 2006 NFL Draft with vastly different pedigrees and expectations.

The Heisman Trophy winner out of traditional West Coast superpower Southern Cal, Bush was one of the most celebrated and decorated players in college football history and the Saints gleefully selected him with the second overall pick in that year’s NFL Draft.

Despite their disparate paths, Bush and Colston each enjoyed spectacularly successful careers in New Orleans and left the Saints as Super Bowl champions and beloved heroes.

And 13 years after they arrived as bookend members of the famed 2006 draft class, the pair of offensive playmakers will enter the Saints Hall of Fame together this fall as members of the Hall’s Class of 2019.
