Landry Jones used to find his identity in sports until God interrupted his plans.
Sports always came easy for Landry Jones. Everyone wanted him for their team. Everybody loved him. He had friends, girls—the world was at his fingertips. Yet he still desired more.
Playing football at the University of Oklahoma was an easy decision to make—arriving on campus and discovering he was low man on the depth chart was another. He was no longer the star, no longer desired by everyone. After all, Oklahoma had the Heisman Trophy winner, Sam Bradford on their team. Landry was out of the spotlight.
Having his identity stripped away was a shock to Jones. He didn’t know how to handle it which showed in a bad attitude and his pursuit of satisfaction in other things. But then came an encounter with God that changed his attitude, his focus, and ultimately his life.
