Former Gonzaga Prep, WSU, and New Orleans Saints star Steve Gleason will be featured in a Super Bowl commercial for Microsoft on Sunday.
The New Orleans Saints website reported the commercial will be a 60-second ad featuring Gleason and others using Microsoft products.
Gleason, who suffers from ALS, eventually lost the use of his voice due to the disease. Microsoft recently created a video showcasing how Gleason inspires others living with ALS and how he utilizes Microsoft technology to communicate.
Steve Gleason was a two-time GSL Defensive MVP as a dominating Bullpup linebacker in the mid-90’s and is a member of the Gonzaga Prep Hall of Fame. He went on to star at linebacker at WSU and played for the New Orleans Saints from 2000-2008 as a standout special teams player and safety.
