When we fall, we learn a lot about ourselves. When others fall, we learn even more about ourselves because of how we treat the fallen—and most of the time what we learn in that moment, and through our actions, is just as bad, or worse, than what we learned when we fell...

Seems Justin Tuck created quite a stir, in the secular and Christian community, when he bought each of his Super Bowl-winning New York Giants teammates, coaches and front office staff a memento to mark an occasion that only 45 other teams had ever experienced...

On Championship Sunday, both the AFC and NFC title games were marred by mistakes in the final moments. Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff shanked a game-tying field goal against the New England Patriots, and San Francisco 49ers returner Kyle Williams fumbled on the punt return, giving the New York Giants a game-winning field goal. But that's life. We're human. And we mess up. How do you react when you're the one to blame for defeat? How do you respond to God when you lose? Former Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins punter Hunter Smith, who is featured on this year's Power To Win DVD, dropped the snap on a game-tying extra point, which ended up being the last play of his otherwise successful career. But as a Christian, he used the moment of blame, shame and defeat to lead people to the Cross. It was drizzling rain at Washington’s Fed Ex Field on Dec. 12, 2010, and seven seconds remained on the clock...

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...
