“On September 25, 2006, Gleason was responsible for one of the most dramatic moments in Saints history, when he blocked a punt in the first quarter against the Atlanta Falcons. Curtis Deloatch recovered the ball in the Falcons’ end zone for a touchdown. It was the first score in the Saints’ first home game in nearly 21 months, during which time Hurricane Katrina had devastated the city. While Gleason did not play for the Saints’ team that won Super Bowl XLIV, he was awarded a Super Bowl ring by the Saints in September 2011. At the same ceremony he was awarded the key to the city of New Orleans by mayor Mitch Landrieu.Gleason was diagnosed with ALS in January 2011, after which he finished his master’s in business administration at Tulane and chose to keep trying to have a baby with his wife, Michel. He has settled in New Orleans, where Michel grew up and where the couple had their first child — a son named Rivers — in October, only weeks after Gleason went public with his diagnosis.”Gleason has continued to remain very active, skydiving for the first time on the anniversary of his ALS diagnosis, and continuing to spend time in the rivers he has loved his entire life. Since his diagnosis with ALS, Gleason began making a series of video recordings for his son, Rivers, so that he may never be alone.A champion that helped inspire a city to move forward and continues to live fearlessly in the face of death.

“"Defenders of the short-sighted men who in their greed and selfishness will, if permitted, rob our country of half its charm by their reckless extermination of all useful and beautiful wild things sometimes seek to champion them by saying the ‘the game belongs to the people.’ So it does; and not merely to the people now alive, but to the unborn people. The ‘greatest good for the greatest number’ applies to the number within the womb of time, compared to which those now alive form but an insignificant fraction. Our duty to the whole, including the unborn generations, bids us restrain an unprincipled present-day minority from wasting the heritage of these unborn generations. The movement for the conservation of wild life and the larger movement for the conservation of all our natural resources are essentially democratic in spirit, purpose, and method."
Theodore Roosevelt,1916”
