Well Christian faith, if you have it, is central to who you are


I'll carefully tow the line here. Being a true believer of Christianity has the central role in a person's life as being Jewish or Moslem does. It's not just a church jersey you wear on Sundays.

From what Dabo said following the championship game, he's clearly a born again believing Christian, and he's wearing his faith on his sleeve. In 20th/21st century America, religion has been put in a box. But plenty of Christians are encouraged to wear their faith in everything they do. Dabo is walking the walk.

Personally I'll applaud Dabo for doing that. And if we ask "what is Clemson's secret", I think appealing to people's faith is part of it. Dabo loves Jesus, and he let's his team know it. Non-believers will be revolted by that. But I will tell you, by openly professing his faith on national TV, Dabo won the hearts of just about every mom in America guiding her son where to sign to play college football.

Some schools will use money, strippers and blow in their recruiting. Dabo will use his Christian faith. Where do you want your kid to be?
