Both Drew Brees and Nick Foles played at the same high school in Texas

Nick Foles was asked about his opponent Drew Brees and their high school and Nick Foles said it best.

“It’s a big state,” Foles would say. “There’s a lot of people there.”

Westlake High in Austin is a pretty big school, but it’s still kind of remarkable that a couple of its alumni, Foles and Drew Brees, will be playing against each other when the Eagles host the New Orleans Saints on Saturday night.

It has only happened once before in an NFL playoff game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Pittsburgh’s Terry Bradshaw and Buffalo’s Joe Ferguson started at quarterback in a divisional playoff game in 1974. They both graduated from Woodlawn High School in Shreveport, La.
