Brett Lorenzo Favre studied at Hancock North Central High School, where his passion for American Football started, yet most of his focus at the time was directed towards baseball. When Favre matriculated from high school, he continued his studies at the University of Southern Mississippi on a football scholarship, his college career marked by setting several university records, including five 300-yard games, and being the seasonal leader in total passing and total offense in all four of his seasons at Southern Miss. However, it wasn’t until he launched his professional football career that he became a well-known athlete in the US.

Brett Favre was chosen by the Atlanta Falcons as the 33rd pick in the NFL Draft in 1991, however, the Falcons coach did not approve of Favre being on the team, so he was traded to the Green Bay Packers, who had wanted him anyway. Favre joined the team in 1992 and subsequently made a name for himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. The Packers with Favre won the Super Bowl in 1997 against the New England Patriots, and during his fifteen years with the team he reached many personal milestones. Often referred to as “The Gunslinger”, some of Favre’s professional achievements included the Super Bowl; becoming a two-time NFC Champion, making it to the Pro Bowl all-star game eleven times, as well as being a three-time NFL Most Valuable Player. In addition to that, Brett Favre’s NFL career is highlighted by many league records, such as the most career pass attempts, most career victories as a starting quarterback, and most consecutive starts by a quarterback, to name just a few.

When Favre retired from professional football, he went on to work as an analyst for the University of Southern Mississippi, coached high school,  made a couple of cameo appearances in films, including with Cameron Diaz in “There’s Something About Mary” , plus the family own Brett Favre’s Steakhouse in Green Bay.

In his personal life, Brett Favre has been married to Deanna since 1996, and they have two daughters. Brett is a philanthropist too, creating the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation in 1996, holding an annual golf tournament, fundraising dinners, and a celebrity softball game, donating the proceeds to various charities in Mississippi and Wisconsin.
