1. Drew Brees passed Peyton Manning as NFL's all-time passing leader on Monday night, breaking the record of 71,940 passing yards in his career. As of Monday night, Brees has 72,103 passing yards.
One of the sweetest moments is when we got to witness what Drew said to his young boys...

"It's probably what I tell them every night before they go to bed, which is ... you can accomplish anything in life if you're willing to work for it." pic.twitter.com/boub15kcOh

2. This is what it's all about! Young Dodger fan catches Manny Machado's home run and gets to meet the athlete after the game.

3. A sophomore quarterback in Texas broke a 32-year-old school record for single-season passing touchdowns in just the first 5 games of the season.
The player's athletic ability isn't the only way this kid shines, he's also humble, saying that his success is due to "the offensive linemen blocking and the receivers taking the ball down the field."
4. The NBA and WNBA recently partnered to launch a new initiative, 'Her Time To Play', to inspire girls between the ages of 7 and 14 to learn and play basketball.
The program will provide youth organizations with basketball curriculum and training for female coaches and mentors.

5. Flashback Friday alert! This highlight actually happened last fall, but it was too good to pass up.
This Minnesota high school football team was down 17 points with just over a minute left in the game. With the help of a couple recovered onside kicks, and a lot of grit, the team was able to come out with a win and advance to the semifinals.
