When most people think of the quarterback of the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin III is who comes to mind and for good reason. RG3 is one of the great young talents of the game and led his team to the playoffs in his rookie year. The backup quarterback for the Redskins is a little less known outside of DC and East Lansing, MI. The backup is Kirk Cousins.
Cousins is a born again Christian who proudly lives out his faith on and off the field. He was a part of one of the most successful classes of players at Michigan State University. And those who do know him now, know him for his great play last year for the Redskins when RG3 went down with a knee injury. Cousins led the team to victories and played like a veteran with poise and confidence. He credited it all to his walk with the Lord and his book examines just how much his faith has helped him through adversity and challenges from high school to the NFL.
Cousins provides great lessons for every reader and especially youth and young adults. The overall theme of making Christ first and learning to make good decisions proves itself over and over in the book. Cousins' own testimony is proof that those who put their trust in the Lord can depend on Him to walk with them through every arena of life.
Where Cousins goes from here is anyone's guess. Outside of injury, it is assumed that Cousins will rarely see the field for the Redskins. While that is disappointing to Cousins who was a three year successful starter for the Spartans in the Big Ten, he will no doubt find success at whatever he puts his efforts towards. God blesses and uses individuals who remain humble and place their entire trust and faith in Him alone.
