Brett Favre is often referred to as possessor of all possible career records.
At the Hancock North Central High School, Brett played football and baseball. Dedicating to sports much more time than to education, Favre achieved quite good success. However, soon he was faced with a difficult choice – the guy needed to decide what kind of sport he would devote his life to. After consulting with his father, he decided to leave the baseball team to spend as much time as possible on football training.
Yes, it was football that sculpted Brett’s figure and has been keeping him in a great shape throughout all his life.
In 2006, Favre made his first record – 400 passes which ended in touchdowns. That season, he also scored a record number of yards – 5000 and scored several bright victories.
Unfortunately, with age, minor injuries increasingly began to happen on the field, so, in 2007, he underwent a minor surgery on his left knee. However, without losing time on rehabilitation, Brett returned to the headquarters of the team. In mid-2007, the athlete became one of the three quarterfinals of the league, winning all 30 teams. At the same year, the team finished the regular season with only one defeat. Favre’s shape was on the top – he was toned and strong as usual.
In 2008, unfortunately, all the fans of yellow-green flowers, Favre had moved to the New York Jets team. After several bright victories, Brett was diagnosed with another trauma – problems with the right, leading, hand. In his own opinion, it’s time to finish with football. But for Brett Favre sport was not just a way of earning money, it was a way of life and way of staying active.
However, just a few months later, the football world was struck by the news – Favre, after long negotiations, signed a contract with the team Minnesota Vikings.
After the end of the season there was an announcement that Favre was going to leave the sport, but it was not as usual confirmed – in the first match of 2010 the most successful quarterback of the league came out, as before, in a purple-white uniform. Unfortunately, luck completely turned away from the player – apparently, the reason was, alas, unforgivable for a football player age – 40 years.
Since no one has signed another “sudden” contract with the player, we can only revise old records or hope that his nephew, the second quarterback of the team at the University of Mississippi, will follow the path of his legendary relative.
