I'm sure you all are aware of a little football game played last Thursday night. As Texas took on Alabama, the number one team going into the BCS National Championship we all watched in shock as Colt McCoy, the Texas quarterback, was removed from the game when he was hit during a play by an Alabama defensive player.

We all know how the game ended. Alabama walked away as the number one team for this season in football. I know my dad, one of the biggest Alabama fans in this state, was a very happy camper that night.

But, that's not what this post is about tonight. It's not about who won and who lost. It's not about which team we were cheering for or what we thought the game was going to be like. It's about the Christian character that was shown by Colt McCoy that night as he watched from the sidelines his last football game in his college career.

Anybody that has ever played any sport can totally relate to the emotions he was feeling that night. Athletes have so much heart for their sport. It is more than a game. The game tests the athlete and develops inner character. Below is the post-game interview that was given to Colt. Check out what he had to say:

We all face unexpected trials in life. Are we going to let that curve ball control us or are we going to let someone far greater be in control of our lives?
