My sauce is so mouth-watering delicious, it will make you wanna call someone! I have Original and Cajun flavors available in 2 packs or 6 packs, and I’ll ship it to you wherever you are. It’s time for you to make a huge reception, Joe Horn’s Bayou 87 BBQ Sauce can’t be beat.
For a five year period there was no wide receiver in the NFL that was more productive than Joe “Hollywood” Horn. During his playing career, Joe Horn was an electrifying receiver who made play after play even though opposing defenses were keyed in on him week after week.
Thanks to relentless passion and energy, “Hollywood” became a fan favorite during a career which saw him set the Saints career mark in receiving touchdowns (Marques Colston broke the record recently), make the Pro Bowl four times in five seasons, and compile the second most receptions (523) and receiving yards (7,622) in Saints history.
Joe is perhaps even more well-known by some for his role in the rebuilding of the New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Horn was noted for his support for the people of New Orleans and the Gulf region.
As a leader of the Saints, he served as the public face of the team in many community events and national interviews, while frequently visiting evacuees in both San Antonio and the Houston Astrodome during the aftermath of Katrina. Beyond Katrina, to this day Joe donates time, energy and money to local charities in New Orleans and beyond.
Perhaps more amazing than Horn’s on-field production and off-field community efforts was his unlikely path to the NFL; which included not playing a down of football for two years after leaving college.
After playing two years at tiny Itawamba Community College in Fulton, Mississippi, Horn found himself working at a Bojangles’ restaurant in Fayetteville, Mississippi with no prospects of playing football as a career.
Down to the final $6.00 in his possession, Horn spent $3.99 on a Jerry Rice workout from a local Blockbuster and studied the drills and moves Rice performed in the film. Horn then made a highlight video of himself working out and sent the tape to multiple professional teams across America and Canada.
One response Horn received was from the Memphis Mad Dogs of the CFL who offered him a contract after viewing the tape and in his first year Horn accumulated 1,414 yards on 71 catches.
From there Horn signed with the Kansas City Chiefs where he spent four years as a combination wide receiver/special teams player, though the six TDs he caught in his final year with the team hinted toward what was to come.
Horn signed with the New Orleans Saints in 2000 and immediately surpassed their expectations ranking in the top ten in receptions (7th), yards (8th) and touchdowns (9th) that year. Even though he came out of nowhere and produced immediately, Horn was no “one year wonder”.
From 2000 to 2004 he averaged 87 receptions, 1,257 yards and 9 touchdowns per season and became arguably the greatest Saints receiver in the history of the franchise. Horn made the Pro Bowl in four consecutive years from 2001-2004 is ranked 58th in NFL history in receptions with 603.
Joe’s entire career is a testament to what anyone can do if they are willing to work hard enough with a focused will, no matter the odds, no matter what is in front of him.
JOE HORN – GIVING BACK
With each purchase of “Bayou 87” barbecue sauces, our goal is to support the efforts of local charitable organizations and the great work they do in New Orleans and the gulf coast region to help residents restore and rebuild their lives. “I have a passion for giving back to the community and I want to be remembered for more than what I did on the football field,” says Horn.
We will support the effort of these organizations in various communities by donating a portion of revenue from the sale of every bottle of “Bayou 87” barbecue sauces sold in those communities.
