The morning after the game down in Tampa, I saw Dylan by himself walking around a mall downtown, just taking in the day like nothing happened. He's just a regular guy. A regular guy that throws game winning passes and doesn't stay out late that night, and goes to the mall the next morning to get a new pair of Wranglers, LOL.

What a guy!

"Attitude Reflects Leadership" ~ Julius Campbell (from the movie Remember The Titans)
Great Post Spurt! John Maxwell has a book that talks about talent alone never being enough. As for physical talent, Demetris Summers had tons of it. Where did it get him? We've seen tons of talent pass threw COLA in the last 12-13 years. Maxwell talks about 13 attributes that is needed in addition to talent and this combination makes leaders.

Charles Schulz said life is like a 10 speed bike. Most have gears they never use. Some of those extremely talented players we experienced relied on 5th gear. Over the last couple of years, we've experienced players with character looking to use all 10 speeds!!

Thompson did an internship with FCA last summer. A group of Gamecock football players met with him once a week for Bible study.

Maybe our adoration of these kids is getting a little bit too high if we are amazed that our backup QB was at the mall one morning buying jeans.

He was buying jeans before he flew out to the Passion 2013 Conference in Atlanta. That's fairly unusual, I think. Of course, we could perhaps have a pic of him partying like A J McCarron.

In his early interviews, he was more outspoken. In the last couple, he just quoted a verse and kept going. However, when they ask him if he was nervous or how he built his confidence the week before, he gives them his honest answer. If the reporters didn't ask those particular questions, he wouldn't say that he had prayed about it or talked to God.

I actually like that about him, but I understand your point, too. Like I said though, he's already said that his confidence comes from God. They don't need to keep asking the same questions.

This thread started out as something great letting our fanbase, The Gamecock Nation, know about some of the positive things that one of our players is doing. I think that Spurt makes a great point as I posted earlier. Now, it has morphed into posting a video of some loser trying to use Tim Tebow to garner his 15 seconds of fame?

Are you kidding me?

I don't particularly care for Tim Tebow. Had he played for us I would feel differently...but, he didn't. I do respect the fact that he has some moral fiber about him and has the spine, guts, balls to not only claim he is something, but to live his life accordingly and not just use that as a facade.

Dylan, I do believe (and this comes from some that know him...not me...but they are trustworthy to me at least) is cut out of the same fabric. He has found something in his relationship with Jesus Christ. Now, whether you are a Christian or not, you should respect his choice concerning his own life and you should really appreciate the fact that this keeps him out of trouble and when his off the field activities do make the papers they don't involve the police or drugs or underage drinking.

Now, I would much rather hear about him living a life worthy of his being asked to speak to youth at churches instead of hearing how the police arrested him at 5 points...or that he had beaten his girlfriend to a pulp (I think that happened 3 seasons in a row a few years back), or that he was pulled over and a hand gun and a dime bag were found beneath the driver's seat...I could go on and on...and if you have been a fan for any length of time you could too.

So, let's focus on the positives while we have them...Dylan is not alone on our team doing this...and let's allow our culture to continue to change for the better...and let's all try to keep a positive about one of our players a positive and not allow, and certainly not contribute to, something bad to be made of something that is really good.
