The biggest moment in Curtis Deloatch’s four-year NFL career -- and New Orleans Saints history -- almost never happened. That story will likely be retold on Wednesday when a slew of Steve Gleason supporters gather for the Team Gleason vs. Wounded Warrior Amputees Super Bowl Challenge at Newman High School for 6 p.m. charity flag-football game.

Though the night will be about raising money for Steve Gleason’s foundation for ALS awareness and initiatives and will pit a team of Iraq and Afghanistan amputee veterans against Gleason’s former NFL teammates and friends – it’s unlikely the night will go by without this tale.

Deloatch keyed arguably the loudest celebration in the history by recovering Steve Gleason’s blocked punt and scoring a touchdown in the New Orleans Saints' first game back in the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina.
