Time is running out, and the match is not looking up for the Rebel wrestler. Sweat is dripping down his face as people in the stands rise to their feet. Only a few seconds remain when the Rebel wrestler is pinned, bringing a sense of defeat that washes over the wrestler. For senior Sam Hansen, when this feeling arises, he looks to God to help him back up. Hansen knows that God is watching over him an...

Taut strings, squinted eyes and a single target ahead. The level of focus is intense, as the aim has to be just perfect before the arrow is loosed to fly.

November 7, 2017

During one of my swim practices, I was listening in on a conversation about my teammates who want to swim in college and how they are looking at colleges primarily for their swimming programs.
