Yes, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham wanted to be a fighter pilot.

 

The 6-foot-7, 265-pound Graham was too big.  He recalls, "Then I wanted to be a Navy Seal or a Marine, but then I got even bigger, so I played basketball."  He hasn't given up on flying. While attending The University of Miami, Jimmy had the opportunity to sit in a single-engine plane with a stunt  pilot. One ride and he was hooked.

 

"I love flying, man. It's very freeing, very challenging. One day I want to do air races. I'll dominate."

-Jimmy Graham

He certainly dominates on the football field. Last season, the All-Pro tight end led the Saints in receptions, with 99, receiving yards with 1,310, and 11 touchdown catches. This season, Who 'Dat Nation will be looking for more of the same.
