Forty years old well they were already in from bond -- were lifting and training -- -- -- on the bush you know how I wanted to be like them and so of if lifting weights is gonna make you better make me they were actually vote my Brothers that out they're doing everything I just talk little what are your Brothers and I think you could take it now -- -- -- right.
I think shot on eleven hours ago I had read all the youngest -- that's -- the system they used to beat the living daylights out of me and you take it now you have barely -- Fed up benefiting -- -- -- they probably could.
Background you know what's amazing a lot of a lot of guys.
And in your profession.
You know what they got girls -- at the gates at the hotels.
All of the stuff.
You grew up in a very religious family you worked on a farm.
You did you went a missionary trips to let the Philippines with the ability -- as a missionary -- You prayed up until the many chose Florida you know where you where was the right place -- to be where you should -- And you did this all the young age.
How to how what is the difference between you and you see what's going on and.
Did football play deathly day there is search.
But I think for me.
Ever since I was a young boy my dad used to always tell me he said you know as a football player you're going to be blessed with the platform.
And when you have success on the football field you people are gonna look up to you and they do with my success.
You know Florida and being a first round draft pick to Denver Broncos -- I'm blessed with a platform and I believe more than just a platform it's a responsibility and obligation.
To be -- remodeled to set a great example.
Because it's one thing score touchdowns to win trophies and championships but I think -- -- day but doesn't matter.
But if you can affect people if you can change people's lives and you can be a good role model someone that a that a mom or dad can look to their son and say hey that's that's -- need to handle it then that's my ultimate goal.
And that's ultimately how I would define my -- life -- -- success if I can reach that fight can be a good role model like I had when I was young and indeed anywhere -- and Tony Dungy and some -- role models that have.
Tony's -- -- -- my I and I agree.
With you but the Christians are saved you told really touching story about how you wanted to do wanna become a Christian your dad's a minister woods was tough on -- wouldn't bet you do one -- mom and he she prayed -- -- -- became a Christian.
But I guess the question I have is -- Lotta temptation in this world who you know -- it is specially.
With -- -- in the public eye and you are a rock star athlete like you are.
You know not everybody has your strength or your faith to guide you through that the -- at -- have you thought through how you gonna deal with all absolutely.
And there's going to be a lot of temptation and you know the longer this goes on the football and everything in.
And being in style you have more more temptation I think.
The number one way that you handle that is is obviously by having a strong faith and rely on that -- in the word but also having a great support staff around you.
But having friends that keep you accountable but have been.
It is every one -- my family to having.
You know everyone that's involved my agents everything to getting all that support staff that believes -- me -- -- gonna keep me accountable make sure I'm doing the right thing.
How -- to your fellow athletes respond to your outspoken faith christianity.
This -- we are role models because some athletes reject the idea I'm not a -- why I think.
I think they respect me hound that's not necessarily for that it's because.
You know they know how passion that I am about football they know how much work effort into -- they -- -- the first one then the last one to leave.
They know that I care about them and so that outweighs everything else I think they respect me for that.
And then they've seen my actions and then you know I think you once they see my actions -- respect -- for that.
Then they're more likely to listen to me and hear what I'm actually experienced that may be guys watched you couldn't and -- and then all of a sudden they're in trouble.
Probably one of the first guys they would turn -- Absolutely there's no doubt about it and you know that's the thing is -- people.
Think that it's about what you say and it really doesn't have much it ought to do which is they asked do with with your actions and what you do every day and then.
When and when they look at you after a long period of time -- -- he's for real.
And then they'll continue talking I think that's a great -- -- -- a talk show hosts that are all big mouths and have no kids could affect our words have no impact.
Interest in the controversy -- discuss this in the book about the need these Super Bowl ad that you did with focus on the family.
And people were.
Projecting in what they thought it was going to be.
It wasn't anything what they thought.
And you did this why and then what was the outcome of that why did it because he had a very special relation to my mom and I want a lot of doctors told her that it was.
That she -- give up on me she believed they said she needed to warn you should they did and -- she believed in me and believe -- got a plan for my life.
Even there were you or even when they're saying I'm an idea maybe -- might be do you tumor and she believed she had the courage and it was an opportunity to publicly I think -- and then -- -- -- Do you -- to celebrate life and it wasn't dangerous mail -- put anybody down that was -- -- -- -- so bad that you were going.
She was gonna die.
If you continue to carry that says she had a high chance.
