MIAMI — Of all the individual experiences that players have on Media Day, Saints RB Reggie Bush might have had the most unique perspective.

In 2003, Bush — then a senior at Helix High School in La Mesa, Calif. — was selected as a special correspondent for NFLHS.com, a high school football site that was run by the NFL. Bush had a chance to be a part of the media covering Super Bowl XXXVII in San Diego. His story for NFLHS.com can be found here.

“It’s kind of funny to be back here and now I’m getting a chance to play,” Bush said Tuesday, looking out at a sea of reporters.

Bush said his coverage mainly focused on the Raiders, who went on to lose to the Buccaneers, 48-21. The opportunity to meet current and former players such as Marcus Allen and Charlie Garner is an experience that has remained with Bush.

“I was a senior in high school and I was excited to be out there,” Bush said. “I remember one of the guys I got a chance to meet was Charlie Garner. I idolized Charlie Garner. I think he was one of the greatest route runners ever as a running back out of the backfield. Getting a chance to meet him and talk to him was special.”
