As I started working on this entry I realized I haven’t posted in quite some time... and for that I apologize. Might be a bit obvious, but I’ve been a tad busy recently and needed to put all my focus into my game.
I probably should also go ahead and apologize for what’s next because while I acknowledge the point of these posts is to offer an inside perspective of the day to day life of a professional footballer or offer insight on a topic that’s weighing on my mind, this post is going to be rather short and much simpler.
I first want to thank everyone that continues to follow FaithFamilyFutbol! When I started this website, I didn’t necessarily have any expectations other than to share what was on my mind and in my heart. When I began my professional career 4 years ago I noticed there were very few players that publicly expressed their faith, and while to each their own, I wanted to share mine. I wouldn’t be where I am today without God’s blessings and the unconditional love and support of my family and I wasn’t afraid to share that with the world.
I am extremely excited to inform y’all that FaithFamilyFutbol.com is now officially one year old! Truth be told, I feel like it was yesterday. I can remember sitting with some of my closest friends constructing the layout of the website and thinking about our objective and what was the point to it all. At first it’s purpose was what I said above, to share my experiences and blessings with everyone, even if it was via a simple post online. However, a few months later FaithFamilyFutbol had its own Facebook page and Instagram profile and while this still blows me away, FaithFamilyFutbol now has its own apparel!
If you check out https://teespring.com/stores/faithfamilyfutbol you can find the first batch of T-shirt’s! I’d also like to note that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Special Olympics and will help aspiring athletics with intellectual disabilities discover and strengthen their love for their game!
Again, I want to thank everyone that has followed FaithFamilyFutbol and I promise I will have another post here in the near future about life on the pitch.
