Drew Brees is the best quarterback Louisiana has ever seen! And Zion Williamson could soon be the same, but for basketball. Now, the No. 1 overall pick by the New Orleans Pelicans will put his skills to the test in football.
The New Orleans Saints have instituted a new ritual at the conclusion of each practice during training where the quarterback group participates in a trick shot challenge.
The team sets up different targets on the field with a point value attached to each object. For the difficult shots, players can earn three points for hitting the target, two points for the next area and one point for the easiest targets.
Drew Brees has won two of the three competitions thus far and opted to enlist Williamson for a future challenge. The longtime Saints QB stopped by the New Orleans Pelicans practice facility to meet up with Williamson.
Williamson said “yes”.
So, what will the competition consist of? When and where will it take place? Nobody knows as of yet, but to say this is intriguing is an understatement.
