NEW ORLEANS — One hundred of the nation's top high school football players were given a glimpse of their dream, and then were prepared on how to achieve it.
One of those players was Glenbrook junior quarterback Regan Edwards. Edwards, who was CO-Offensive MVP in District 3-A in the MAIS this season, was one of those players in attendance.
"It was a great experience, there were a lot of good players there, but there was only six quarterbacks," Edwards said. "Leonard Fournette was the best player, probably the best player in the state."
NFL PREP 100 is dedicated to changing the culture of the NFL through touching prospective players at the high school level.
Edwards took part in a Rivals football camp last summer, and based off that, he was invited to the NFL PRER 100.
"PREP 100 is an excellent platform to extend our reach and develop the future of the NFL both on and off the field,'' Troy Vincent, the Vice President of NFL Player Engagement and a former Pro Bowl player, said. "The Saints community came together for the common cause of developing their student-athletes and educating parents about health and safety and expectations at the college and pro levels. We so appreciate the Saints organization for opening their facilities and bringing their community together for this purpose. We thank New Orleans for allowing us to be a part of their community."Subscribe to Read!
