"Football was no longer my dream..."

Error message

(Tim, w/thanks to David W.) At the beginning of his second season as an NFL running back for the 49ers, 23 year old Glen Coffee just announced his retirement:

It was a struggle for a long time. Actually when I look back I feel I never

should have entered the draft in the first place. Football was no

longer my dream. I found Christ in college. It changed my views on

everything. But I still was a football player because it was expected of

me, it was something I did all my life. I was basically wasting the

(49ers') time.

Asked if he might change his mind, Coffee responded: "I've already told Christ it's time to go. I've already rung the bell. That's not going to happen."

Augustine would be smiling.
