When I was growing up and playing baseball in my hometown of Clayton, I recall reading where one of the major league managers said that “nice guys always finish last!” Over the years, on occasion, things have seemed to work out that way. But thankfully, nice guys don’t always finish in last place. In fact, quite often they finish at the head of the pack and do so with dignity and class. One most recent example involves Drew Brees, the talented quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, who led his team to a tremendous win in the Super Bowl. The Purdue graduate, a tremendous quarterback, is a strong Christian and a strong family man who plays by the rules. Drew Brees is the sort of man that every father should want a son to grow up like. He has been very active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. This is one time that a nice guy did finish first!
Heath Evans, who played at Auburn and is now with the Saints, had this to say about Drew: “Real men of God are always trying to find ways to draw closer to the King. Drew never misses a chapel, team Bible study or couples’ Bible study.” That pretty well tells me what sort of man Drew Brees is. We need more like him in the sports world.
