Praise Report

As players "graduate" from SportsLeader High School programs they are moving on to be leaders in College. Ed Berry is a tremendous example of this. We are very proud to have him blogging with us. I had the privilege of seeing Ed practice one day at UK. He goes all out every play.

God bless, Lou

I am Ed Berry, a Sophomore Wide Receiver at the University of Kentucky. 

Here was my situation when our football team traveled to our bowl game in Nashville for the Music City Bowl.

I contracted a mono like virus called Cytomegalovirus (CMV). I was sick the entire trip, and when I finally made it home CMV led to another more serious condition called Autonomic Dysfunction. 

This had me down and out for almost two months. I missed almost a month of football and a couple weeks of school. I still tried to go to class through my sickness because that is what the doctor's suggested. Usually I am a very good student, but obviously at the beginning of this semester my grades were slacking. 

I worked very hard to bring each and every grade up, mostly from D's to B's. The absolute only reason any of this was possible was through Jesus Christ. He has helped me overcome several adversities this year, and I was able to finish the semester with 2 A's and 3 B's. Praise the Lord!
