    I would like to add another name of professional athletes to this list. His name is Jake Burnette. He is 19 year old from Buford, GA, and has been drafted to pitch for the Pittsurgh Pirates. He is a fine young man, and a wonderful role model for our young Christian athletes.

    I am proud of everyone of these young Christian athletes and all young people who make great accomplishments while remaining faithful Christians. God bless them all! May we follow in their steps.

    Please include Ricky Stenhouse in this. Ricky is a memeber of the church in Olive Branch MS. He is a driver in the top NASCAR series. Great young man for God

    Lets not fail to reconize Tim Tebow who has done more to cause people to take another look at their faith than anyone else in years. “We are just Christians, but not the only Christians.”-Campbell
