Regardless of Your Beliefs

 

I found this pretty cool:

Tonight at church we were SO BLESSED with the opportunity to watch the following four men be BAPTIZED by their team chaplain:
Walter McFadden
Antonio Coleman
Eltoro Freeman
T'Sharvan Bell
Recognize those names? Yeah. It was awesome. He had a hard time lifting some of them out of the water, they weigh three times as much as he does! Yet with tears in their eyes and soft hearts as big as the room, they stood in front of hundreds and confessed their faith in Christ.

You can read the rest over here. As well as this tidbit:

Antonio Coleman finished out the service by telling us his story and had the whole place in tears. He finished by saying, "Auburn is a special place, it is such a special place", and I couldn't agree more. Auburn IS a special place. God is moving here. Next time you see them on TV, just smile and know that they are living for so much more than football.

This isn’t the place to discuss religion (nor do I want it to be) but I do know this. One of the things recruits parents look at it is what type of activities their children are going to be involved in. I don’t have kids, but I’d rather seem them get baptized on a Sunday night then participate in a dorm room brawl that suspends 8 players.

I do have kids (4), and this is the best thing I've seen posted all season.
