In the wake of professional football players who continue to disrespect our flag and country, it’s nothing short of a treat to talk about a college football coach who bucked PC culture and gave his players one of the most powerful gifts of all time.
Rest assured that millions of liberals, which include millions of atheists who are offended at the very mention of the word “God” or “Bible,” were instantly triggered when coach Mark Richt handed each and every one of his players something that they’ll carry for the rest of their lives.
Christian Post reports:
When University of Miami head football coach Mark Richt heard that not every member of his team had a Bible and that many of those who did had older versions they could hardly comprehend, he decided to do something about it.
Last week, Richt, a 56-year-old unabashed Christian who doesn’t shy away from his faith in public, gave every member of his team a personalized Bible with their names embroidered on the cover.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Richt solicited the help of team chaplain, Steve DeBardelaben.
Debardelaben helped Richt obtain enough Bibles for every player and coach on the Miami Hurricanes roster and during team meetings on Sunday, he gave the players the Bible and told them that it was only optional that they take the gift.
“I told the guys, ‘It’s a choice. If you want to just leave it at the chair, you can. If you want to take it with you, you can. If you want to give it to somebody, you can. But I just heard enough guys say they didn’t have one and some guys said they had older versions that were harder to understand,” Richt told local media outlets on Wednesday. “We have chapel before the games and it’s 100 percent voluntary. Some guys go, and some guys don’t.”
This speaks volumes to the type of coach we have. I appreciate you getting us our own Bibles, so we can do everything in His name. 29:11 pic.twitter.com/MGO3levL7r

Richt said that he often recites “wise sayings from Proverbs” to his team.
“If anyone would take the challenge of reading a proverb a day, you’re going to get wiser,” Richt said. “It’s good stuff. I just wanted to make it available to them.”
