Delhomme is about as Louisiana as it gets. Cajun, to be more specific. He played his high school ball at Teurlings Catholic, where he is still a very present entity and revered as a legend in the football program. The man who grew up in Breaux Bridge then took his skilled arm to play for Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns, where he set school records for passing yards (9,216), attempts (1,246), completions (655) and touchdowns (64). Then he was signed by the Saints after going undrafted. Can it get more Louisiana than that?
After spending three seasons on the practice squad in New Orleans, Delhomme signed with the Panthers to the Super Bowl in his very first season. He still holds franchise records for game winning drives (23), passing yards (19,258) and TD’s (120).
After a fourteen year long professional football career, Delhomme now lives in Breaux Bridge, La., where he spends the majority of his time breeding, buying and selling racehorses; working in the banking industry; and coaching his two daughters in various sports. He was recently inducted into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame this week.
