Hattiesburg man receives Saints award

HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg man is being recognized as one of five recipients of the New Orleans Saints Community Quarterback Award.

Anthony McBride was selected for being an outstanding volunteer in the Gulf South region. He'll be formally acknowledged for his service on Sunday, January 2nd, at the Saints game when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

McBride is the Safety Director for Johnson Controls Inc. in Hattiesburg and volunteers with other organizations like the United Way and Mayor Johnny DuPree's Youth Leadership Council.

Additionally, McBride is the head coach for Sacred Heart School's youth football team. The team is made up of seven and eight year olds.

According to McBride, "Football teaches you discipline. It teaches you how to win and how to lose. Those are things and obstacles that you are going to face throughout life, you are going to win some and you are going to lose some. So I think it's imperative to teach young kids at an early age that you are going to lose some and you are going to win some but most importantly keep your head up throughout all of it."

McBride said his wife nominated him for the Community Quarterback Award. However, he plans to take his ten year old son, who's a Drew Brees fan, to Sunday's football game.
