Drew Brees continues to show himself to be one of the nicest guys in professional sports this off-season, as he recently took a moment to seek out a young fan with special needs while he was visiting Brees’s restaurant in Shreveport, La.

Ten-year-old Hunter Glass has cerebral palsy and is a big fan of the Saints quarterback. The Pay It Forward Networking group arranged for him to be at the venue to meet his hero. The young fan was so excited he was quickly brought to tears by Brees stopping by to say hello.

Brees also gives back through his own Brees Dream Foundation which has raised over $25 million for education for families in need and quality of life improvements for cancer patients.
