Lipscomb University student competes on ‘Survivor’

The Tennessean in Nashville reports:

Survivor fans will have some local ties in  Survivor: Redemption Island. It was shot last fall in Costa Rica and begins airing Wednesday on WTVF-5 (CBS).
Matt Elrod is a 22-year-old Lipscomb University pre-med student, which makes sense. His father is  Burton Elrod, the Titans’ team physician.
Matt played football at David Lipscomb High School from 2004-2006 and was an All-Midstate choice in his junior and senior season.
The 6-foot, 190-pound Elrod comes off in Survivor promo pictures as a surfer dude with shoulder length blond-streaked hair.

Read the full story.
See Elrod’s biography.

    Cool, but the season is in Nicaragua again, NOT Costa Rica.

    will he promote his Christian faith, Christian education, etc, etc? we’ll see – not worth watching if he’s just a sell-out!

    Grace, I would like to recommend an article for you to read and ponder, if I may.

    I noticed Matt attends Lipscomb in Nashville… Does anyone know if he is a member of Church of Christ, and if so, what congregation does he attend services with???
