The Trump Campaign thanked Favre for his support.
Favre is one of the most accomplished quarterbacks of all-time. He shattered records and won Super Bowls, but perhaps most notably the legendary quarterback produced iconic moments that endeared him to generations of adoring fans. Here is a compilation of some of Favre’s greatest moments.
The football legend’s greatest game winning touchdowns:
The time he did that amazing Keith Jackson impersonation:
Favre’s 99-yard touchdown pass to Robert Brooks in 1995, which led to the Packer’s victory over the Chicago Bears:
Finally, when Favre’s father, “Big Irv,” passed away, he honored him by throwing for four touchdowns in the first half and finishing the game with one of the top performances of his career.
Favre joins golf legend Jack Nicklaus who also endorsed Trump Wednesday in a lengthy statement imploring voters to believe in the “American Dream.”
Nicklaus wrote, “[Trump] has delivered on his promises. He’s worked for the average person. In my opinion, he has been more diverse than any other President I have seen and has tried to help people from all walks of life — equally.”
