FEW WORDS FROM PIERRE THOMAS

SINCE THE BEGINNING I HAD A TOUGH ROAD AND HAD TO "EARN MY KEEP" EVERYWHERE I PLAYED, FROM POP WARNER TO THE PROS. I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE A RICH CHILDHOOD IN TERMS OF HAVING LOTS OF FRIENDS AND A GOOD FAMILY. I WAS ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING SPORTS AND OTHER GAMES WITH THE KIDS FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD. OFTEN I WAS TOLD THAT I AM TOO SMALL AND I WILL NEVER MAKE IT IN THE NFL, BUT I DIDN'T CARE WHAT THEY TOLD ME. I JUST SIMPLY BELIEVED IN MY SELF, WHICH IS WHY I AM HERE TODAY PLAYING RUNNING BACK FOR THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS!

GOING UNDRAFTED WAS A SURPRISE AND AT THE SAME TIME NO SURPRISE AT ALL. I KNEW I HAD MY WORK CUT OUT FOR ME. SHORTLY AFTER THE DRAFT I RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS INVITING ME TO ATTEND THEIR CAMP WHERE I WOULD COMPETE FOR A ROSTER SPOT. I KNEW IT WAS NOT GOING TO BE EASY, BUT I NEVER GAVE UP. I ALWAYS BELIEVED. I EARNED A SPOT ON THE ROSTER AS A ROOKIE PLAYING ON THE SPECIAL TEAMS AND THE REST IS HISTORY.
