I know that a number of NFL players will, from time to time, "...give thanks to Jesus Christ..." in a post-game interview, and that some claim to have had transformative experiences with Christ (Ray Lewis of the Ravens comes to mind).
My question is: Does anyone know of a website anywhere that actually lists players who have made such claims, and possibly the date that they first made public testimony concerning their salvation?
In particular, I wonder about Panthers WR Steve Smith. Certainly, he gave his own rep a "black eye" last year in training camp, when he busted the lip of Ken Lucas, but I was impressed with the contrite way he faced the media after he was handed a two-game suspension by the coaches, and he claimed full responsibility, and apologized. Just wondered if his life -- and the lives of any other NFL players who have claimed Christ -- truly reflects Jesus Christ in day-to-day life. (I'm a BIG fan of "Smitty," so I hope so)!
Just wondered who the "real" Christians are on the field, so I can try to remember to pray for them if they are in a game I am following!
