Steve Gleason

It was seven years ago this month that Steve Gleason achieved immortality among New Orleans Saints fans when he blocked a punt in the team’s first game in the Superdome following Hurricane Katrina. But it was two years ago this month that Gleason inspired people far beyond the gridiron when he revealed he is living with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

On the eve of Gleason Gras, his annual event to raise awareness of ALS and support the Gleason Family Trust, Gleason agreed to an email interview. He answered Gambit’s questions with the use of assistive technology that allows him to type using his eyes.
