Best experience of being a New Orleans Saintsation so far: Being a part of this team has been the best experience of my life. Every day that goes by, I cherish it more and more.

It was an honor to bring a little piece of New Orleans to Hawaii.
Best thing about being a Saintsation: The best part about being a Saintsation is all the amazing opportunities it offers.
