Jeff Saturday

The heart and soul of the Colts' offensive line is All-Pro, 8-year veteran center Jeff Saturday, whose rock-solid work ethic and selfless character set the tone for the units' collective commitment to excellence. "Jeff is a leader in a lot of ways," says Colts head coach Tony Dungy. "He is a great Christian leader, a guy our players can talk to about spiritual things."

Saturday came to Christ shortly after signing with the Colts. "I didn't know too many guys, and I was struggling to find my place on the team," recalls Saturday. "Then I met a guy named Mark Thomas who ran a team Bible study. He befriended me and talked with me about my perspective in life. He helped me understand that there is a greater purpose than just playing football."

Whether the Colt's reach their ultimate goal of winning the Super Bowl or not, Jeff Saturday's identity as a child of God is secure. His peace and purpose in life are no longer tied to performance but rather to God's faithfulness. "I want to live my life to glorify Him in all that I do and everything else from there will fall into place."
