I am not better than anyone else just because I play football.
It was huge to read the Proverbs of the day every morning, it was huge to read the Psalm of the day every morning and to get that in us and get us going before the day even started.
I knew I loved football before I even played it. Uh, but the first time I stepped out on the field playing for the Lakeshore Redskins, I knew that I loved this game. I knew that this was something I wanted to do. And I was only 6 years old, but I loved it.
Something I always try to practice is be anxious for nothing, but let your request be known to God.
I want to support kids that not a lot of people believe in. Give them an opportunity to do good in school, play sports and get scholarships.
There's a lot of things that go into scoring touchdowns and leading your team. It's not just the game itself, but going back and studying tape to pick apart everything I did. It's nice to have something to go on, doing it full speed in a game situation.
I try to be as real and honest about everything and very genuine with people and say, 'Listen, I'm a Christian, and I'm not perfect. I screw up every day, but I think that's what grace is all about.'
Of course I want to look nice and have a good appearance, but more than the outer shell, I want people to want to be around me for my heart.
I train about six days a week. I'm training at the same intensity as I did when I was playing football. I've done it for my entire life, and I love it.
When I say something, I want people to take it to the bank that I mean it and believe in it. It humbles me that companies want me. It's a challenge to uphold their values and make their product look good. I take that personally.
You know, I think He honestly does care about how we play on the field, more than anything more than win or lose our hearts on the field.
