“Throughout my professional football career, I have used these same Speed, Agility, Power and Educational programs to reach my goals and dreams. My passion is to build character using Christian principles; share my professional and athletic experiences; provide Speed and Performance training to help athletes reach their goals in sports and life.”
1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
