Delvin Breaux is a cornerback for the New Orleans Saints and one of the better young defensive players in the National Football League.
A New Orleans native, Delvin Delvin attended McDonogh 35 High School and received a scholarship to play football at LSU. During his senior season in high school, Delvin fractured his C4, C5, and C6 veretbrae during a kickoff return. Though the Tigers honored his scholarship, Delvin was never cleared to play and his football future was in jeopardy. However, Delvin never quit on his dream.
He joined the New Orleans VooDoo of the Arena Football League and then played two seasons with the Hamilton Tiger Cats in the Canadian Football League. While in the CFL, Delvin blossomed and was named to the CFL All-Star team. His outstanding play in the CFL earned him a tryout with his hometown Saints in 2015.
Delvin seized his opportunity. Not only did Delvin make the Saints following training camp, he was named a starter and finished his first year in the NFL with 45 tackles and 3 interceptions.
After the 2015 season, Delvin was the Saints' recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award and was voted the team's defensive MVP by a fan vote on the Saints' website.
