What great advice does the new Heisman Trophy winner have for kids?

Sounding like Tim Tebow, the new winner of College Football's award for the best player had some fantastic advice when he accepted the award.


On Saturday, the young man Derrick Henry won the Heisman Trophy awarded to the best college football player in the nation. His statistics were amazing—he is a running back who powered Alabama to the College Football national championships this year.

But even more important is his character. In his speech accepting the award, he said "...God is everything. Always keep God first. Always pray. Don't be afraid to pray. He always hears your cry..."

"God is good. And I get on my knees every night and thank Him for everything. So keep God first. Always pray. And always chase your dream..."

This is the kind of role model we need for kids today! Like Tim Tebow, the Heisman Trophy winner from several years ago, we need athletes and stars who will put God first regardless of the cost. Way to go Derrick!
