He is a former NFL wide receiver who played five seasons. He played college football at the University of Oklahoma and was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the 2005 NFL Draft and played until 2008. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2008 to 2009, Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009, and New Orleans Saints in 2010.

He said of his faith, “Over the past few years, I have experienced several setbacks and challenges in my life that directly impacted my family and my football career. These trials created frustration, disappointment, and sadness. But in the midst of it all, God brought me through.

“There were times when I felt angry, confused, and discouraged. It was His love, grace and mercy that ministered to me moment by moment when I needed encouragement to simply make it through each day. If it had not been for the Lord, I don’t know how I could have gotten through such stress. I had a few reasons to quit and throw in the towel. But through it all, I have learned how to trust and lean more on God; to let God be God.

“I have developed a better prayer life now, and that has helped me to experience a new level of faith in God, his word, and His son Jesus. The Bible says that Christ gave his life that we may have life more abundantly. That doesn’t mean we won’t have troubles. So, as you deal with life and its many struggles, I can tell you that God really does make all the difference in the world.”

He is a cornerback in the NFL, who is currently a free agent. He played college football for the University of Michigan from 2005 to 2008. He was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. Since then, he has played for the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Washington Redskins.

He said of his faith, “I grew up in a Christian home and my parents made sure that I knew how important it was to live for God. I did my best through my high school years and even into college, and I never let peer pressure affect me. Then, toward the end of my freshman year, I discovered that my girlfriend of the last six years had been cheating on me. This turned my world upside down. From that point on I decided that I was going to party and surround myself with women instead of letting the Lord heal my pain. I was the new life of the party, but I didn’t feel right. Even then I could sense God pulling me back toward Him.

“A few months later a good friend was drafted into the NFL and wanted me to visit. I knew what kind of things he liked to do–drink, party and be with women. I knew I shouldn’t go, but I went anyway. It was the one time I really gave in to peer pressure. For the next two years I was scared to face God. I feared I wasn’t worthy of forgiveness. But, in 2006, I went back to church. I found that God welcomed me with open arms. It felt so good to be back where I belonged and growing closer with God.

“Living for the Lord isn’t easy and we all fall at times. But I’d rather live for Him than for anything this world has to offer.”
