McElrathbey, Webb, and Russell

Well, my Hoosiers are out of the tournament, but at least Butler is still in. Go Bulldogs!

Only three articles today. The first is on Clemson football player Ray Ray McElrathbey. He's the guy who's raising his brother, but he's having academic problems. He could probably use some prayers for help. Here's the article:

Next, a good article on Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon Webb, a Christian:

Lastly, an article on former LSU quarterback and top NFL draft prospect JaMarcus Russell. Here's a couple of quotes:

Russell talking about the bad neighborhood that he came from in Mobile, Alabama:
"I had a lot of friends that were very capable of doing certain things, but they didn't really have that push and that guidance behind them to get there," Russell said. "I look back at all the things I could have gotten into and thank God for where I am today and where I could have been had it not been for my family."

The other is about he and his grandmother Berncie Russell:
It's always been about family with JaMarcus. He was tagging along with his grandmother to Williamson High School games (in Mobile) from the time he was 2. Bernice helped sell tickets on Friday nights, and JaMarcus was always right by her side while his mother worked.

On Saturday mornings, they were fixtures in church, as his grandmother is a Seventh-day Adventist.

Here's the article:
