Nicely done, great description of being crushed in spirit. And then comes that lift!
This is a really heart-warming story. Your interwoven lesson is excellent. It'd be great for a JH age devotion. Very nice writing, I totally enjoyed it!
I agree that this would be very good in a devotional for teens. It's got a great message for anyone who feels insecure about the Lord's plans for their life.
Great detail, and a wonderful message. I'm not a football fan, and I still loved it.
Love this piece, the message is wonderful. One of my favorite lines, "He looked at the sky to plead his case..." Excellent writing.
What I most liked about this piece was the paragraph beginning “The snap of the football …” Wonderfully OTT language that lead the reader through Tommy’s run as if in slow motion.
I suspect that there simply isn’t enough space to do justice to both Tommy and the pastor, such that we don’t really get to understand either one adequately. Personally I think that Tommy is your more interesting character and deserves the story to himself.

Very creative. I enjoy football and always want to know what's going on on the sidelines. Thanks for taking me there. So many of us questions our calling. This was a great story on that subject. I was so happy to see the coach's calling confirmed to him. Great job.
Congratulations on your EC. I love your creativity with "the pulpit." And since I'm a huge football fan, any football story will strike a chord with me. Great job.
Good job! My hubby will like this for sure, football with a message and what a good one at that! Congrats on placing 3rd on the EC list. Good job! God bless and keep it up-I really like your description and how it all made sense at the end, very touching and encouraging!. Janice
