At 36-years-old, Meb Keflezighi won the Olympic marathon trials last weekend. Keflezighi's story below was featured in the Winter 2010 issue of Sports Spectrum. Nearly two years ago Meb Keflezighi couldn’t walk. Even moving around in his bed required help from loved ones. His predicament was the result of a fractured hip he incurred Nov. 3, 2007, at the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in New York City...

With the recent success that Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos have had since Tebow took over as the starting quarterback eight weeks ago (he has gone 7-1 as a starter after people in the media said he couldn’t play in the NFL), several questions have arisen among believers as well as non-believers. They are: Is God showing favor on Tim Tebow or the Broncos? And does God care about the outcomes of sporting events, and in particular NFL games, or does He choose one team over the other? This topic has multiple levels of discussion, but below are a few. However, before we tackle (no pun intended) these topics, let’s remember this: We let God’s Word form our opinion and our theology. We don’t find Scripture to support our opinion or our view just because we believe it (which, in essence, would be man-made theology)...

High jumper Jesse Williams was honored on Tuesday as a recipient of the Jesse Owens Award. This season, Williams became the first American to win a world high jump crown since Charles Austin in 1991. Managing editor Brett Honeycutt's story on Williams was featured in the Spring 2011 issue of Sports Spectrum. U.S. Olympian. Three-time U.S. champion. Four-time NCAA champion. NCAA field athlete of the year. Those are Jesse Williams’ accomplishments. But it’s not what defines him...

From birth, Landry Jones seems to have been groomed to play football and play it at a high level. However, despite setting several school records for the storied University of Oklahoma football program last season as a freshman, when he filled in for Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Sam Bradford, Jones didn’t get lost in all of the glitz and glamour that comes from playing big-time college football. Sure, Jones (6-foot-4, 219 pounds) has aspirations of playing in the NFL like anyone who plays for a major college football program...

“As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist fulfill your ministry.” II Timothy 4:5

One morning this season TCU quarterback Andy Dalton received a text from his dad, Greg. “God says that He is with us in the midst of pain,” the text began. It continued, “Weeping may last for a night, but a shout of joy follows in the morning. God is able to cause something good for the bad for those who love Him and follow Him. Thank God alone for the things He alone can do.” Texting to Andy is something Greg does every morning. This time, though, the text dealt with the death of Andy’s grandmother...

“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’” Hebrews 13:5

"Musings" is a column-like blog written by Sports Spectrum Managing Editor Brett Honeycutt. It covers current sports issues and how they relate biblically. *Tim Tebow is now the starter of the Denver Broncos…again. But I know that news in Tebow Nation is about as old as who won last year’s Super Bowl. Denver announced it on Tuesday after Kyle Orton’s abysmal game this past Sunday. I’m a fan of Tebow. And, yes, it’s because he’s a Christian. But it’s really because he stands for something. He stands for Christ in the midst of adversity, and he is bold in his witness. No matter what team you root for in the NFL, you have to like someone like Tebow if you’re a believer in Christ...
