Rashad Jennings sits inside his New Jersey home across the Hudson River. Two days before, he rushed for a career-high 176 yards in the New York Giants’ 30-17 victory against the Houston Texans in Week 3. He dedicated the game to his father, Albert Jennings, a double amputee who lost his legs to diabetes. Jennings looks down at his blank piece of paper, silent and reflective. Here he is, the starting running back for the New York Giants, in the biggest city in the country...

With his record-setting, high-octane offense, his waves of points, yards and victories, Baylor head football coach Art Briles has taken his once-woeful, now wow-inspiring team to heights even the most optimistic Bears fans never thought possible. He changed the attitude from consistent loser to Big 12 Conference champions complete with a sparkling, new multi-million dollar stadium, tens of millions of dollars of revenue for the school and the rightful expectations that Baylor can continue as a faith-based, private school powerhouse for years to come...

You look the most hipster out of all of us with that bike,” Switchfoot lead singer Jon Foreman laughs. I look back over my shoulder at Foreman behind me. “I don’t know about that,” I laugh, as I coast down a hill on a yellow, rusted fixie they’ve lent me from their tour bus.

Our biggest breakthrough moments sometimes come when we least expect them. In 2005, United States goalkeeper Brad Guzan had thought he played poorly in place of Chivas USA’s injured keeper. The squad finished with an abysmal 4-22 record in its first season, and Guzan believed much of it fell on him. “I was young,” he says. “I wasn’t sure I was ready mentally, physically…"

The video is produced by an organization called “Sons of God Intercessory Ministries (ICWC) Europe,” and as of March 10, 2014, the video only had 64 views...

Clint Dempsey was in kindergarten when he discovered that he loved soccer. The exhilaration of scoring goals was exactly what he needed to deepen his love for a game that has taken him all over the world and allowed him to play at soccer’s highest level in Europe and in the United States. “My parents had started me in the sport to help me learn good people skills,” Dempsey says. “Little did I know that the sport I loved and the skills I learned would later play a role in my relationship with God...”
