Colts and MLB

Here's a few articles about the Colts. The first is about an organization that Gary Brackett, a Christian, is starting to help kids with cancer, called the IMPACT Foundation. It's as a result of what he saw in the hospital while visiting his brother who died from cancer. The article includes the website for his organization: Make sure and check out the articles about him listed on the home page. I'll put this website with the other websites. Also, there is a list of community activities that other Colts players have been involved with this off-season, including Jeff Saturday, Hunter Smith, and Ben Utech, who are all also Christians. Utech sang the National Anthem at the Indianapolis Speedway last Sunday. Here's the article:

The next article about the Colts is about recent fourth-round draft pick Clint Session from Pitt. Here's a quote:

And that’s fine with Session, who said he’s thankful for the opportunity to show he can play in the NFL. And play very well. Somewhere. Anywhere.

“Every day I’m jogging off this field and thanking God I’m here,” Session said. “I’m praying that something good comes out of it and that Coach notices my work ethic and what I bring to the table and that they find a spot for me somewhere out on the field.”

The last Colts article is about recent fifth-round draft pick Michael Coe from Alabama State. Here's a quote:

That confidence, he said, didn’t wane on draft day, although what he had heard before the draft differed drastically than what occurred.

“I don’t want to say it bothered me, but people said with my versatility and height, I wouldn’t get out of the third (round),” Coe said, laughing. “I ran well at my Pro Day, but I’m just thankful I got drafted. One thing I prayed about was being in the best situation, where I can blossom. I felt like wherever I went, I’d be in the best situation. I think I’m more confident because of that, because it’s something I prayed about.

“I would have liked to have gone a little earlier, but I’m here and it’s part of the plan. I’m just excited about the opportunity.”
