Former Tech QB Luke McCown prepares for Saints training camp

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

Former Louisiana Tech quarterback Luke McCown is preparing to head to training camp with the Saints in a few weeks, but came to Shreveport for the Independence Day holiday to spend time with family and friends.  

On many teams the back-up quarterback is one of the most popular players.  On the saints, he's the "one" guy nobody wants to see take a significant snap.  McCown is entering his tenth season in the league and his second with the Saints.  KTBS 3's Bob Griffin spoke with McCown and we learn how this back-up has what may be the perfect mentality for the job.  

The Saints playoff hopes clearly ride on the shoulders of Brees, who has re-written the NFL record books.  For McCown, seeing Brees week in and week out through a professional quarterback's eyes has been special.
