Above is the quarterback that you now know as No. 4, but he used to wear No. 10 back when he played for the Hancock Hawks in Hancock County, MS.
Some call him the greatest quarterback to ever throw a football, but that's for history to decide.
Yes, it's Brett Favre, former Cheesehead and now New York star.
Brett Lorenzo Favre was born at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport, MS on Oct. 10, 1969, just a few months after a devastating Hurricane Camille had laid waste to the Gulf Coast. He was the second of four children, three boys and a girl.
All of the boys played quarterback in high school and now the son of one of Brett's brothers, Dylan Favre is continuing the family tradition by breaking a lot of Mississippi passing records, including a few of his uncle's records.
On the Hancock Hawks, Favre played quarterback, lineman, punter, kicker, and safety. The coach of the team, Brett's dad, the late Irvin Favre (known as "Big Irv") knew that his son had a great arm, but he ran the "wishbone" offense which involves a lot of running.
If Brett threw the ball nine times a game, then "Big Irv" complained that the team was throwing the ball too much, so it's no surprise that Brett accepted a scholarship offer from Southern Mississippi to play defensive back.
He began his freshman year as the seventh-stringer and for those who know of Golden Eagles football, you know that the seventh-stringer hardly ever has a chance to play.
But Brett got his chance.
He took over the starting position on Sept. 19, 1987 against Tulane because of injuries to other quarterbacks. Brett had drank a little too much the night before and was suffering a hangover during the game, even vomiting during warmups.
Despite his "sickness," he of the cannon for an arm led the Golden Eagles to a comeback victory.
One of Favre's most memorable college games came against sixth-ranked Florida State. Favre threw a game-winning touchdown with 23 seconds remaining and the Golden Eagles pulled an upset, one of the many times that they would do it with Favre behind center.
