Colt McCoy drops Philippians 3:13 on the Longhorns

The Apostle Paul wrote this to the church at Philippi (3:13),

…but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead

Almost 2000 years later, the Texas Longhorns have been seeking a leader since Vince Young departed for NFL pastures and according to this story, Colt McCoy (below) might have finally stepped up into that role quoting Paul in the process.


McCoy made a passionate speech after Texas’ loss to rival Oklahoma. According to the article,

McCoy said he quoted a passage from the Bible to make his point.

“Forget what is behind, strain toward what is ahead,” McCoy said. “It’s time we start doing the right things and playing well.”

Gotta love the guy, wonder if he has any plans to enter the ministry after football?
