Not all pro athletes are jackasses: Drew Brees Gives HS QB Alex Ruiz New Prosthetic Leg After February Amputation

Recommended Posts


New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees surprised high school quarterback Alex Ruiz last week by presenting him with a prosthetic leg.

Ruiz, who plays quarterback at Linfield Christian High School in Temecula, California, had his left leg amputated below the knee in February after suffering a serious knee injury on the field, according to ESPN.com's Mike Triplett.

In addition to the prosthetic Brees gave Ruiz last week, the future Hall of Fame signal-caller promised to purchase an athletic training prosthesis for Ruiz in the fall.

Brees called the presentation of the prosthetic "very emotional," and Ruiz said the following about the surprise encounter: "If there's anything above cloud nine, that's where I'm at right now."
