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...

“Moses said to the LORD, ‘O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.’‘The LORD said to him, ‘Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the LORD? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.’” Exodus 4:10-11

“Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home.” II Samuel 11:4

It was a great story and most of the major print media outlets like ESPN.com, the Associated Press, The New York Times, L.A. Times and Yahoo Sports picked it up and wrote about it. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw and his new bride, Ellen, went to Zambia on a goodwill trip to help orphans by building a schoolhouse and providing education for them...
