08:03 AM ET 05.26 | The New Orleans Saints made a few dreams come true Wednesday when four raffle winners joined the offseason workout program at Tulane. The idea was another brainchild of quarterback Drew Brees, who thought the players had a unique opportunity to turn this unique offseason into a positive. "It was absolutely more than I ever possibly could have imagined," said Shane Dunshee, 35, of Luling. "It was unbelievable. The players were just outstanding. I just can't say enough. I mean, I still haven't come down from Friday when I first heard that I won." The other winners were James Begnaud, 34, of Youngsville; Emily Gilly, 29, a Metairie native who now lives in Columbia, Md.; and Dawson Schoening, 11, of Forney, TX.

if an 11 year old can do it....why can't Reggie Bush?

I've always wanted to see someone named "Emily" play for an NFL team.

He can always fall back on the millions he made from endoresements, his first NFL contract, and the millions he made @ USC

I'm heartbroken too. There goes my 1 in 1 billion chance.

I see a run for office for Drew Brees after football. I met the guy once. Couldn't have been more genuine and friendly.
