Eddie Gaven - How to Stay Strong




Last week my son and I were able to attend a Columbus Crew soccer game against the NY Red Bulls. A friend of mine, Mike Burke, and the Badin High School soccer coach Kyle Kammer wanted to see if they could get Eddie Gaven could meet with the team after the game to give his testimony.

Jim Scmitdke of Athletes in Action very generously worked hard to make this happen - Thanks Jim!

After a great game, a 2-0 win, we were able to meet with him for a few minutes. It was an awesome experience to be around a professional athlete who takes his faith and his family so seriously. He is an excellent role model for our young people, not to mention an outstanding athlete.
