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."

He has blown up twitter every time he's played. You won't see that by following him, because he doesn't tweet his stats. You see it by typing his name in the search bar and reading all tweets for every Dylan Thompson on twitter. We are in off season now, so no one is tweeting football stats.

What's your point?

My point is that his tweets are religious in nature.

I believe in the same higher power as Dylan but out of respect for people who don't I said "let's not make this a religious thread" I didn't say we can't talk about it, I was just saying let's dont argue with each other to the point where the thread is shut down.

Some of his tweets are religious - about half I'd say. He also tweets about his friends, where he is, what he's eating, if he's playing ball, working out - he loves the social media, I guess. He appears to me to be a happy kid who loves God, people, and life. There's never anything downer from him at all. I think he might be the most positive person I've ever come across.

People like that awaken an interest in other people. They want to know why he's happy. They want whatever he has that makes him that way.

That's awesome. I follow him on twitter and always read the things he tweets. It's obvious God is working through Dylan and I'm greatful he's apart of GamecockNation!

Religiously based or not, Dylan found the catalyst that made him a better person and football player. That's all that matters. He's gonna light it up at Billy Brice!!!! He's fearless

I was good until I got to the part about Christians being persecuted. That's like talking about the White man's struggles.

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.

Guess the lesson for CT Christians here can be found in Matthew 7:6.

We need more people like him in this world.

Default Re: CNN article on Dylan Thompson

I get the impression a lot of the Gamecocks are Christians and God-fearing. It seems to correlate with the cultural improvment under Spurrier. This is somewhat ironic since Spurrier is not one of the coaches that publicly wears his religion on the sleeve. He just walks the walk.
