Though he worked with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in high school, he went into a depression when he got to the NFL. It was then that he says he "really got saved." He says of that time, "I had one of those great, wonderful, salvation moments in my life. It was one of those moments that I knew that God’s spirit had moved into my heart, and into my life and had grabbed and taken control of me, and you know what? I couldn’t escape it. Because I learned that God forgave me...I was led through the sinner’s prayer. It was pretty powerful. And what it did was, it consumed me. And it still does." His name is Terry Bradshaw.
