“He Proved Them Wrong”

They told him he wasn’t good enough. He was too slow and too small to compete with men who were bigger and faster. The only thing the coach said was,

“You’re not good enough to play for us. Turn in your

helmet.” He packed everything he owned into a 6 foot

trailer and drove his Ford Pinto station wagon back to

Oklahoma. Faith in God had sustained him in the dark

days when he prepared to get on with life. Then the

phone rang. Another team was interested in him. By

the time he retired from the game in 1989 he had set

3 records in the National Football League. Steve Largent, the Hall of Fame player–the man whom they said was too small and too slow–had caught 819 passes for 13,089 yards and 100 touchdowns.
