Heisman Winners Share a Common Faith

The ChristianPost notes that Athletes in Action highlights the stories of both Heisman quarterbacks playing the championship game this year.

Tim Tebow (Florida Gators) was actually covered here last year, as yet another Christian who desired to use his platform to share his faith, and who prioritized his God above all else.  (He even has “Phil 4:13” on the blacks under his eyes when he plays.)

Sam Bradford (Oklahoma Sooners) listed his time in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes through high school and college as central to the growth and strength of his faith.  Perhaps ironically, the FCA–which Fisher Deberry also supported–and its role in high schools and colleges is a frequent topic of controversy; complaints on church/state separation grounds have become common.
