Amazing, this is what the op is about and somebody doesn't want it to turn into a religion thread. If religion bothers you, don't read it.
Deal. I want to see national articles written about Dylan based on nothing but his football playing and not about all the religious stuff.

Great read.

Love that we have guys leading by example and being class acts both on AND off the field.

When people like Lattimore, DT, and countless others publicly go on record and recognize that their talent is God-given and put Him first, it's amazing what can happen.

I'm pretty sure Carolina4Life was saying "let's not turn this into a thread arguing about religion" but I could be wrong.

This isn't about god, at least not directly. It's about DT17 getting some national press.

Funny though that all the possible things that could be negative press, people find ways to complain about one of the most positive things you can put out there. I'm not an overly religious person, but it is refreshing to see. It's one of the last things i'll find a reason to complain about.

Well, the article is in the CNN Faith section, and it talks about the bible out loud project. Says SOS uploaded a verse. I wonder what it was.

Bet Cully reads something out of Leviticus.

Yeah, that's right...I went there.

I think DT has made CS a better QB because it has forced him to air it out more and utilize his deep threats. CS was too focused on the high % short passes when he proved vs Clemson that he can sling'm just like DT can.

Get ready for some really good QB play this fall. We no longer have to worry about guys showing up on Saturday drunk or hungover. Thank God. DT and CS are heaven sent.

It's great and I certainly will make it a "religious" thread because what Dylan is doing not only shares the Gospel and our Lord with others but it brings faith into the football program and players that may need a direction. He is a true leader on and off the field much like Marcus is. I'm proud to say that my three boys have strong believers to look up to, not just because they are gamecocks, but believers in Christ. We need more people like him in this world.

Thompson has Bible study in his apartment for the players once a week. This past week, a player made a profession of faith. Last Sunday, 20 Gamecock football players attended church with him. Obviously, the guys don't see any hypocrisy or preachiness in him. They see leadership and godliness, and some of them want it, too.

BTW, I doubt there will ever be national articles about Thompson that don't mention his faith. It's such a part of him, that whether he's leading us to a victory over Clemson or throwing the final pass for a score in the bowl game, the media will mention his faith. He has made it clear that his faith gives him the confidence to play and the drive to play his best. The media will always use that angle. It's called "human interest."
