Greenbrier Resort to Host New Orleans Saints Draft Party

Posted: Updated:

 The historic Greenbrier Resort is hosting a New Orleans Saints Draft Party.

The team's general manager, Mickey Loomis and head coach, Sean Payton, will attend via Skype.

The event is set for April 30, 2015 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Greenbrier's Slammin' Sammy's restaurant.

Guests will get a look into the 2015 NFL Draft as they hear directly from Mr. Loomis and Coach Payton heading into the first round of the draft as the team announces its first round picks.   The draft party continues with a relaxing evening in Slammin' Sammy's on May 1, 2015, from 7 to 9 p.m. as guests watch the continuation of the 2015 NFL Draft.

According to a press release, general manager, Mickey Loomis, will enter into his 12th season in his current position and 14th with the Saints.   He is a veteran of nearly 30 years in the NFL and during his time in New Orleans, he's been honored with the most prestigious awards presented to a league executive.   

Since he was hired as head coach of the New Orleans Saints in 2006, Sean Payton has established himself as one of the most successful coaches in the NFL.   Since coming to New Orleans, Coach Payton has led the Saints to five playoff berths, three NFC South division titles and the franchise's first World Championship with a 31-17 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.   Throughout his tenure, Coach Payton hold the franchise's top winning percentage for a head coach and ranks fourth among current NFL head coaches.   The 2009-2011 seasons under Payton marked the most successful stretch in team history, as New Orleans posted a 41-14 mark, including the postseason, the most victories in the NFL.  Coach Payton is one of just seven active coaches to lead a team to a Super Bowl victory.

The New Orleans Saints Draft Party and The Draft Continues are parts of The Greenbrier's Ultimate Sports Weekend.
