WHAT IS THE TRAIT THAT YOU ADMIRE MOST IN OTHER PEOPLE AND WHY? I admire people who are compassionate because I feel like understanding is what we are missing as a society. Once you reach a certain level of compassion and understanding for others, only then will you be able to relate to them. IF YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAVEL ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD IT BE AND WHY? I would like to travel to the Philippines to visit family that I’ve never met. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE TEN YEARS FROM NOW? I want to be a public defender helping those who have been wrongfully convicted and can’t afford proper representation. I also hope to have a family and have made an impact in my community. IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER FOR ONE NIGHT WITH ANY HISTORICAL PERSON, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY? Michelle Obama — she has always been a role model of mine. I admire the way she goes about decision-making and the way she carries herself. WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PIECE OF ADVICE TO THE YOUNGER GENERATION? I would tell the younger generation to follow any dream, no matter how crazy it sounds! The sky is the limit!


SAINTSATION SPOTLIGHT

GET TO KNOW AUSTEN WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST THING ABOUT BEING A SAINTSATION? The lifelong relationships you make. You meet the women who will stand in your wedding, teach you things you never knew you needed to learn, and be there in the hardest times in more ways than one. To me, it’s more about the sisterhood than dancing. One day, we’ll all hang up our pom-poms, but the memories will be cherished forever. HOW DO YOU BALANCE BEING A SAINTSATION WITH YOUR DAILY LIFE? It’s so easy to get caught up in the chaos, so I have really tried this season to focus on not being in control of everything. I multitask a lot, focus on my diet and sleeping habits, but remind myself not to go crazy about expecting perfection. I manage my time wisely but challenge myself with ways I can be better. If something needs to get done, I find a way to make it happen! WHO IS A SIGNIFICANT ROLE MODEL IN YOUR LIFE? My dad. He is the most selfless, God-fearing, and hardworking man I will ever meet. WHAT ARE THE TOP THREE ACCOMPLISHMENTS YOU’RE MOST PROUD OF OUTSIDE OF JOINING THE SAINTSATIONS? Starting my own business at 19 years old and having a thriving career at such a young age; buying my first car at the age of 21; and sponsoring a six-year-old girl who lives in a small village in India, giving her the opportunity to attend school, eat three meals a day, and have a proper wardrobe. She is now eight and we write letters each month back and forth. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME? I enjoy spending my spare time with my loved ones. The older I get, the less free time I have... which reminds me that life’s too short to take the things and people you value for granted.

WHAT IS THE TRAIT THAT YOU ADMIRE MOST IN OTHER PEOPLE AND WHY? The ability to find the good in everyone. I have quite a few friends who have the capability of seeing the best in absolutely everyone they come in contact with, and I appreciate them for that. IF YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRAVEL ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD IT BE AND WHY? I would visit both my brothers and then attempt to backpack somewhere with them. They both live overseas (one in China and one in Thailand). I would love to spend time in each of their new cultures. I plan to visit them once I am retired and have two months to spare.  IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER FOR ONE NIGHT WITH ANY HISTORICAL PERSON, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO HAVE DINNER WITH THEM? Any or all of the major biblical characters and pick their brains about sacrifice, the choices they made, and the faith they encountered or did not encounter. I would ask them if they knew the impact they would have on the world and what it was like to witness Jesus’s power firsthand— in the flesh.  WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PIECE OF ADVICE TO THE YOUNGER GENERATION? Whatever you do, do it with confidence! You could wear a garbage bag for a dress and no one will second guess it, if you do it with confidence! Chin up, shoulders back — that exudes confidence without even trying.

CLUBS MEET FOR FINAL TUNE-UP IN MERCEDES-BENZ SUPERDOME BEFORE REGULAR SEASON OPENERS

T

onight, the New Orleans Saints will conclude a preseason that featured grueling padded practices, non-padded workouts focused on correction, preseason games in Louisiana and on the East Coast and West Coast, and extensive commitment in the meeting room, training room and weight room. This phase of meticulous preparation all comes to an end this evening when New Orleans hosts the Miami Dolphins in the MercedesBenz Superdome, the club’s final dress rehearsal before they return to their home stadium 11 days later to play the Houston Texans in a nationally televised matchup. The Saints and Dolphins, who entered the NFL in 1967 and 1966 respectively, have been natural geographic rivals in the preseason, having played 21 times and Miami taking a 14-7 edge. The 21 meetings make Miami New Orleans’ second-most common preseason opponent behind the Tennessee Titans, who they have faced 30 times. Both teams enter tonight’s game hav-

ing utilized the preseason for specific team goals, the Saints looking to build off two strong seasons and the Dolphins seeking to build continuity following a coaching and philosophy change on the field. Surging with 11-5 and 13-3 records and consecutive NFC South division championships from 2016-17, there is no denying that the aim is to take the next step past last January’s NFC Championship loss. While the NFL is a week-by-week proposition, virtually every roster move, decision and game plan is designed to work towards that goal. On offense, New Orleans has built up the tight end position by adding a receiving threat in Jared Cook and countered losses at running back and center by signing tailback Latavius Murray, drafting center Erik McCoy and signing offensive lineman Nick Easton. Defensively, much of the core that has shown significant improvement has returned, with the biggest changes taking place on the defensive line where Malcom Brown takes

over nose tackle and Marcus Davenport is expected to move into the starting lineup. The defensive backfield was supplemented by the additions of safeties Saquan Hampton and C.J. Gardner-Johnson and the return to health of nickel cornerback Patrick Robinson. Special teams return with the outstanding duo of kicker Wil Lutz and punter Thomas Morstead, a pair of specialists both currently at the top of their games. Competition at kickoff and punt returner continues to flesh itself out. After 6-10 and 7-9 campaigns in 2017 and 2018, the Dolphins underwent a coaching and quarterback change, hiring former New England Patriots linebackers coach and defensive play-caller Brian Flores as head coach. They also staged a competition for starting quarterback duties between veteran free agent pickup Ryan Fitzpatrick and offseason trade acquisition Josh Rosen as the Fish look to take a new direction on how to approach the AFC East competition.

CHRISTIAN

HILL #7

WILKINS #97

Entering his third NFL Season, Taysom Hill was originally claimed off waivers from the Packers at the end of the 2017 preseason by the Saints. Since then, he has provided value and versatility on both offense and special teams. During the 2018 season, Hill proved to be a critical component of a high-powered Saints offense that featured him at quarterback, receiver, and as a ball carrier while continuing to thrive on special teams. Hill’s versatility was on full display in 2018 making a variety of big plays including a pair of rushing touchdowns, a blocked punt in Tampa Bay, and a touchdown reception in the NFC Championship game. Even with his success at multiple positions, Hill’s primary focus is developing his passing skills and continuing to master the quarterback position. This was on full display on August 18 in a 19-17 come-from-behind win at the Los Angeles Chargers. Hill helped New Orleans rebound from a 17-3 deficit, manufacturing two touchdown passes, leading the team in rushing and engineering the fourth quarter come-from-behind game-winning drive that produced a field goal to put the Saints up. Tonight’s matchup versus Miami will be another chance to see how far the third-year signal caller has come.

A three-year starter and four-year letterman out of Clemson, Christian Wilkins joined the Dolphins after being selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft. Wilkins played in 59 games at Clemson, tying the record for most games played in school history. The Springfield, Mass. native finished his senior campaign in 2018 with 50 tackles (26 solo), six sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery helping his team to a National Championship, the second during his college career. Wilkins was awarded the Williams V. Campbell trophy, given to the nation’s top scholar-athlete, and was the first player in school history to win the award while also being unanimously selected as a first-team All-American. After selected by Miami in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, the 6-foot-4, 350 pound defensive tackle brings a lot of energy to the Dolphins line and looks to showcase his talents in the NFL as a threat in the trenches. Tonight will be another opportunity for Wilkins as he continues to gain experience.

moment – a moment he will never forget. But this wasn’t the moment that the third-year free safety was picked 42nd overall in the NFL draft. This specific moment came two years after. It was bigger than that. It was the day he had promised to his parents. The day he graduated from college.

Saints safety Marcus Williams spent three seasons at the University of Utah, earning first-team All-America honors, before declaring for the NFL draft in 2017. Despite leaving school early, he hadn’t given up on his education. It was all part of the plan. During Williams first two seasons in the NFL, he became a mainstay in the Saints defense at free safety while balancing schoolwork, pursuing a degree in sociology which he received in May of this year. Williams’ mindset is simple: when you start something, you finish it. “Finishing my degree is just to show others that when you start something, you finish it and you never give up, regardless of the obstacles that you have to go through to do it,” Williams said. The Pomona, California native jumped right into the rest of his coursework, enrolling in online classes right after the draft. He would load up on classes during the summer and spring so that he could focus on football in the fall. Williams continued his typical routine of balancing school and everything that comes with playing football, trying to adjust to life in the NFL and learning a new playbook. His typical schedule would involve going to practice, going to meetings, working out, watching film, doing homework, watching more film and finding time to eat in between all of that. “I’m pretty good at balancing,” Williams said. “Once you get the hang of it, you’re good.” On the field, Williams has had other learning curves. “The biggest difference between my first and second year was just the mental aspect of the game,” Williams said. “Just being able to know and dissect plays, understanding how to read quarterbacks and just being an overall leader out on the field, being able to tell (my teammates) where to go or help them out or tell them

what routes are coming just because I have that year under my belt, and then I see what’s going on in the league and see how teams are trying to work their offenses. I was able to put our team and my defense in a better position, then also put myself in better position so that we had a better chance on the defense.” Williams came in during the Saints’ resurgent 2017 campaign that saw New Orleans finish 11-5 after three straight 7-9 seasons. “We all had it in our mind that we were used to winning,” Williams said of the 2017 draft class. “We come from winning schools and we have a mentality that we’re winners. Every game we went out, we’re like, ‘It’s time. Let’s do what we do. Play ball. Don’t worry about the outside world. Worry about what we can do. Worry about what we can handle.’ If we can handle what we can handle, then we can handle the overall outcome of the game.” In his first two seasons, Williams compiled 129 tackles, six interceptions and 10 passes defensed while starting all 31 games that he has appeared in. Williams emerged in his rookie sea-

son logging the second-most snaps on defense with 960 and the second-most interceptions with four. His 73 tackles put him third on the list. While his numbers dropped last season, he led the defense with 955 snaps and impacted the defense in other ways. “There might not be as much production, but you can see that you’re affecting quarterbacks or you’re affecting offenses in other ways just by where you’re standing or what you’re doing on the field,” said Williams. What doesn’t show on Williams’ stat line in his second season is how much his football knowledge grew and how he has learned to put himself in the right places on the field. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder prides himself on his ability to read quarterbacks and the time he has put into film study to learn from his mistakes. “His football IQ has grown tremendously,” said Saints Secondary Coach Aaron Glenn. “His understanding about playing a cat-and-mouse game with the quarterback’s hard to do. They say they’re going to do it, but understanding how to do it is a whole totally different deal, and

O RL E A N S S A IN T S | G A M E D AY M A G A ZIN E 2 019

then understanding quarterbacks in general.” “Every quarterback is different. You can affect quarterbacks by your movement; you can affect quarterbacks by your hand signals. And I think he’s learning how to do that, and he’s at the point in his career now where he studies quarterbacks really hard.” Williams learns from breaking down film, not looking at the numbers he produced. Now, in his third season, is arguably the best time for Williams to continue to pose a threat to his opponents and put to use what he has learned so far. “I never lose my edge,” he said. “Never lose my competitive nature, never lose focus, never lose sight of film study, never lose that leadership and that hunger. Just always knowing that somebody else’s trying to do the same thing I am, trying to be in the same position I am. For me, it’s just never losing my edge. No matter if I’m starting, no matter if I’m not starting, you just have to continue to stay focused and if you handle all that business, then the plays will come to you, and it will also help the outcome for the team as well.”


ALUMNI UPDATE

MY SUPER BOWL MEMORY Inside each Saints Gameday during the 2019 season, a Saint will go back to reflect on the special 2009 season, where New Orleans ran through the year with a 13-3 record and captured Super Bowl XLIV.

JABARI GREER This week’s guest will be cornerback Jabari Greer. After New Orleans finished the 2008 season 8-8, despite a 5,000-yard passing season from quarterback Drew Brees, three of the culprits were bottom ten NFL rankings in opponent points per game, opponent net yards per game and opponent passing yards per game. In unrestricted free agency, New Orleans signed Greer, who spent the first five seasons of his NFL career in Buffalo, to a four-year contract. Greer, along with fellow cornerbacks Randall Gay, Malcolm Jenkins and Tracy Porter, would solidify the position for the 2009 season. Greer started the first eight regular season games of the season, none of which the Saints lost. Suffering an abdominal injury, he returned for the regular season finale to round himself into shape and then started all three postseason contests en route to the Super Bowl XLIV Championship. After holding down a starting cornerback position for five seasons in New Orleans, Greer was a New Orleans resident for almost ten years, before relocating to the Toronto, Ontario area with his wife Katrina in 2018, where they and their family live as he serves as an NFL analyst for The Sports Network, the preeminent sports television network in Canada.

Entering training camp, what were your expectations for the 2009-10 season? I signed with the

but when the Saints got down, we figured out a way to come back and win those games.

Saints and met a couple of players on my free agent visit to New Orleans, and I knew that they had a good core group of guys. It was when we started training camp, and the expectations of a Super Bowlcaliber team truly hit me, and I knew what the stakes were.

When did you know that the 2009 team was capable of something special? I think

What regular season game stands out from that season? I think that our team highlight for me was the comeback victory in Miami. I came from a team (Buffalo) in which we previously would have responded to that adversity in a negative way. Being on the New Orleans Saints, you came to realize that no matter how much you’re behind, you’re never out of it. We never gave up and we never gave in. That was probably one of the best lessons that I’ve learned in my life. It was just the differences within organizations. Some organizations get down and lay down,

one thing that was really the most impressive about that team is even though we were 13-0, we were never content. We used to say we are the angriest 13-0 team in NFL history. Because the truth is, after every game, we held each accountable and always found a way to become better because we knew the margin for error was so slim (in this league). I knew that we had a great thing because we were having fun, we were flying around, creating a lot of turnovers, and our offense was doing the things it historically has always done.

What was your most memorable moment from that season? Of course, at the end, we had won the Super Bowl and it was a long season. We’re on the 50-yard line, the confetti is falling and I see my young children

N E W O RL E A N S S A IN T S | G A M E D AY M A G A ZIN E 2 019

standing there in that moment, and see the confetti falling on their faces. I remember where I was at that age, six or seven years old. I was staying up late watching the Super Bowl and then fast forward years later, my kids are experiencing that for themselves. I realized that through all of that hard work, their lives will be changed forever. What I experienced that year to see my kids, to see my family, kind of enjoy the fruits of that hard work was special.

Do you have a funny story you’d like to share from that season? I remember we were in a tight game versus the Carolina Panthers, and it was a crucial two-minute drive. We’re on the sidelines, and the tension — you could cut it with a knife. Coaches were screaming, players screaming, and we were all trying to get on the same page and (the) only thing I could focus on was the t-shirt this guy was wearing who was featured on the jumbotron. I was thinking, ‘I wonder why he would wear that shirt?’ and I’m

thinking like, ‘You know what? Maybe the guys would wonder the same thing,’ and I’m like, ‘What do you think about this guy’s shirt?’ When everything stopped, they were like, ‘What are you talking about? Stop daydreaming!’ It was a situation made me realize that football is fun. It could be a tense, but fun at the same time.

How often do you wear your Super Bowl ring? With my job as a studio analyst (For Canada’s “The Sports Network”), I wear it when we’re on location for Super Bowl week. Other than that, whenever I’m at Saints functions or celebrating something that has to do with the Super Bowl. That’s really the only time I wear it. I pick and choose my spots.

10 years later, what do you reflect back on from that season? “I love the guys; we still communicate to this day. We have great relationships. That is something that you didn’t expect. Our coaching staff would always say, ‘When you win together, you walk

together forever,’ and the truth is that you do. You see guys get married, have children, progressing in their career and even though you might not stay in contact as much, when you achieve something together like that, you always have that bond. Even though I haven’t spoken with (a lot of) them recently, you have that shared accomplishment and it’s all love. When I do see them, we just revert back to the good old days.

What do you remember about the city of New Orleans itself and Saints fans during that season? The love for the team and I guess, more than anything, the way the fans would stand outside and wait for us at the airport. It was crazy. I was always worried about hitting somebody; it was so crowded, but it was something they loved doing. The way that city and the residents of the city are intertwined with the organization, win or lose, I think is truly remarkable. I learned that every day was a celebration in New Orleans.

DOLPHINS - COACH & KEY PLAYERS

Brian Flores – Head Coach Brian Flores became the 13th head coach in Miami Dolphins history on February 4, 2019. He spent 15 seasons with the New England Patriots organization, where he served in a variety of different roles and helped the franchise win four Super Bowls — XXXIX, XLIX, LI and LII — and seven AFC championships. Flores coached defense for his final eight seasons in New England and was the team’s defensive play-caller and linebackers coach in 2018. In Super Bowl LII, his defense limited the second-highest scoring offense in the NFL (L.A. Rams) to just three points, tying a Super Bowl record. As defensive play-caller, the Patriots defense improved from 17th in the NFL to seventh in passer rating and were tied for fifth in the NFL in takeaways and tied for third in interceptions.

FINAL FRAME

BETTER TO GIVE THAN RECEIVE It was training camp of 2018, and an eight-year-old boy named Westin Key was in for a surprise he would never expect. After practice, Westin (pictured next to Drew Brees) got to meet his role model, Drew Brees, and from that day on, Westin made a goal to save every penny he received from birthdays and holidays and make an impact in other people’s lives. Recently, Westin reached out to the Saints PR department and asked if he could donate the $600 dollars he saved to the Brees Dream foundation and Thomas Morstead’s What You Give Will Grow foundation. After hearing about this, Brees and Morstead invited Westin out to practice to give him the VIP treatment and an up-close view of the Quarterback Challenge. At nine-years old, Westin now hopes that his example will make an impression on others to lend a helping hand in the future.
