God Leads Former NFL Player to US Army
US Army SSgt John Williams Jr played for the Baltimore Ravens in 1997 and played for other teams until 2005. After that:
“Late one night I was praying and asked God for guidance on what I should do next,” said Williams.
He stated that after that prayer, he coincidently found and Army kevlar [helmet] with the initial W inside of it, and it felt like a sign from God to join the Army.
Well, that’s one way to do it.
One thing left unsaid is why Williams enlisted. Having played football as a senior in college, he presumably has a degree, which would make him eligible to attend training to be an officer.
Regardless, he has a good answer when people ask him why he joined the Army.
Because God told him to.
