I was raised on a farm in Georgia. We attended a little country Baptist church, and there I accepted Christ as my personal savior at the age of nine.
Growing up, I played whatever sport was in season and always prayed for touchdowns and wins. If it didn't happen, I figured my opponents were better Christians. I came to realize that God doesn't take sides, but He is with you whether you win or lose--in good times and in bad.
I've leaned on God and His commandments in the Bible to overcome temptations in life. Things have gone smoothly when I stay close to Him, and He has always been forgiving when I have fallen short.
A knee injury ended my professional career as a running back. But what seemed tragic was a blessing. Two years later I was asked to be a player coach and entered a profession in which I thought I had no interest.
God has a wonderful plan for our lives.
