WATCH VIDEO! In October, 2013 certain Seattle Seahawks players and coaches produced a video titled, “The Making of a Champion: Seattle Seahawks”. This high quality, high production value video is a compilation of amazing personal testimonies about Jesus Christ and the relationship each player/coach has with our Lord. Real men, real NFL football players, real Super Bowl Champions, real Christians talking about their lives before and after Christ.
“The video, produced by Seahawks players and coaches with high production values and editing and Rinaldi-esque music, features other members of the organization talking in general terms at first but ultimately about their Christian religious beliefs and values. It culminates in a suggested prayer from long snapper Clint Gresham”. H/T NBC Sports
Here are a few excerpts from “The Making of a Champion: Seattle Seahawks”.
“God has given me this amazing talent to throw the football although I’m 5’ 11’’ and people said I couldn’t do it. No body can stop what God has for you,” Russell Wilson, Quarterback, Seattle Seahawks.
“I play football to glorify Jesus Christ because I was empty and alone. Jesus came and set me free, gave me peace, gave me joy”. Clint Gresham, Long Snap, Seattle Seahawks.
The world we live in today, you know; You get so many people telling you how you should live, what it means to be successful, what you should strive after. And I just think you need to have a desire to want to know why you’re here. Ask, ask the why question. A lot of this other stuff is not as promising as other people says but, God’s word is solid, the foundation is solid, the promises are solid and the future is solid. Sherman Smith, Running Back Coach, Seattle Seahawks.
It’s never too late. It’s never too late to really give your life up no matter how old you are, how young you are. There’s always an opportunity, you just have that chance. Russell Okung, Tackle, Seattle Seahawks.
