(I know. I'm an Alabama fan. I shouldn't be writing fan letters to the other team's quarterback. But I'm a Christian before a football fan, and I would be amiss to not use this opportunity to recognize a testimony of God's grace and power in the life of one of His people.)
I know that this is not how you imagined your last game in college football. I know that the disappointment must be overwhelming. I am very sorry that you ended your college career helplessly on the sideline.
I have to say, though, that it points to the sovereignty of our God that He authored such a complete testimony from a single player's life. We've seen you win with grace. We've seen you lose with grace. Now we've seen you sit out with grace. The last is definitely the greatest challenge, but you rose to that challenge. As your Christian sister, I am grateful for your faithfulness. Thank you for using every opportunity to speak with grace, and for not missing a chance to point to the One who matters above all else.
I'm an Alabama fan, so I was very happy to see my team win. But I gained the most pride from you, Mr. McCoy. Keep standing on the Rock, dear brother. See you in the NFL!
