Brock Purdy

Everyone loves an underdog story, and Brock Purdy is the best underdog story going in the NFL right now. As the final pick in the NFL Draft, otherwise known as “Mr. Irrelevant,“ Purdy's ascent has been very much relevant, and he has gone on to set multiple league records and reach milestones that only the elite quarterbacks reached those respective points in their careers.

Best fan moment of the year

Purdy had arguably his signature moment when he got his first NFL start for the 49ers late last season against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Not only did Purdy outplay Brady in every aspect, but he also became the first quarterback in league history to defeat the GOAT while making his first-ever start. Pretty special.

How this fandom made the world a better place

Brock Purdy is a powerful reminder that the universe always presents an opportunity. Being ready to seize it is often the difference between the athletes we remember forever and those we instantly forget.
