Superstar defined

He became the very definition of who a superstar football player must be for much of my life. He played 16 NFL seasons, 14 for the Rams. At the end of his NFL career, he had amassed 1,024 catches for 15,208 yards, 91 touchdowns, or 546 points. His teammates called him “The Revered” because he intended to become a minister and preach his faith after football. In many ways, he has enjoyed a successful life in two careers, as he is now a minister of Words of Life Fellowship Church in North Miami Beach, Florida.

The speech lasted the allotted 8 minutes duration and can be viewed on YouTube at this link. While some shy away from a man of convictions speaking about his faith, he is a man of courage wrapped in kindness, belief wrapped in humility. Former Rams assistant director of public relations Tony Wyllie presented Bruce. When he reached the podium, he thanked God and his family.

The full speech was worth the price of admission, but if you can’t watch and listen to his acceptance speech, let me cite some of my favorite quotes.
