Drew Brees takes his game into the classroom teaching high school students important lessons about financial literacy by playing Financial Football, a fast paced, interactive NFL-themed game. The Super Bowl XLIV champion and MVP announced the launch of the new version of the game September 13, 2010 at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans. Brees travelled to Bay St. Louis, MS to meet with students at Bay High School to talk about the importance of learning the basics of money management at an early age. Brees played the game with 50 students at the Mississippi high school. He coached his team to a 16-0 win over the team led by Mississippi State Treasurer Tate Reeves in an action packed game. Students also played the new game on iPads. The game is available as a free iPhone and HD iPad app on iTunes.
