NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was recently baptized in a swimming pool during the summer.
Kelly, who played for the Buffalo Bills and led the team to four straight Super Bowls, was surrounded by a small group of people who came to see him get baptized.
“The very best of Summer 2023,” his wife, Jill Kelly, wrote. “Jim’s t-shirt says, ‘God’s Real.’ He is! I have witnessed God at work in this man’s life for over 30 years…and I can tell you that God isn’t just REAL. He is faithful, trustworthy, kind, loving, compassionate, powerful, gracious, GOOD, merciful, forgiving…and so so much MORE.”
Colorado head coach Deion Sanders maintained his faith-centric outlook on football after a blowout loss to Oregon Saturday, praising God in a postgame news conference and continuing that approach on social media, where he said he thanks Jesus, win or lose.
It can be tempting to think that suicide will always be someone else’s problem. But given its rapid rise, particularly among young people where as many as four in ten teens struggle with suicidal thoughts on a daily basis, chances are high that all of us will have the opportunity to help save a life at some point. The question then becomes how well we will be equipped to do so when that situation arises.
Saturday’s game was the first for the Horned Frogs since making their College Football Playoff National Championship game appearance earlier this year. Meanwhile, the Colorado Buffaloes had only won one game last season and had not previously scored a top 20 win since 2002.
Deion Sanders, 56, was named head coach at Colorado in December after leading Jackson State (Miss.) to records of 11-2 and 12-0 in his last two seasons. Prior to that, he worked as a football analyst on television. He is one of the more outspoken Christians in sports.
