New Orleans Saints signal caller Drew Brees is creating his own co-ed flag football league called "Football 'N' America."  The initial launch will begin this fall with leagues in New Orleans, Covington, and Baton Rouge.

"We've really created a league here that we kind of want to be the model standard for youth co-ed flag football around the country," Brees said. "I played flag football all the way up until I was a freshman in high school. I didn't put pads on until after that. I feel like the fundamentals that I learned from flag football, especially the passing game, was huge. Also just the confidence and self-esteem I gained from playing the game and having the passion of the game, I gained from playing this part of the sport." - Drew Brees

Brees hopes his league will "save" the game of football and offer a safer alternative to boys and girls wanting to play the sport.
