Being the star quarterback for the USC Trojans is an honor for Matt Barkley. Several of the last few starting quarterbacks before him: Mark Sanchez, Matt Leinart, and Carson Palmer, all established a presence in the NFL. Experts are projecting Matt to join them in the professional ranks. High expectations rest on his shoulders.
For now, however, the junior at the University of Southern California has a platform in which the spotlight is shining on his every move, including his faith in Christ. A faith that has been keeping him at the school in the wake of a coaching change, NCAA sanctions against the school, and the temptations of the NFL. A growing faith that is making a difference at his school and in the lives of others.
