QUOTE : " My faith helps keep me grounded . Iknow that no matter what I do here---my success or my failure on the field---that there's a higher thing going on for me with God [ Jesus ] . To be able to have that kind of faith, it makes the failures, especially here, not as important. The most important thing is my faith and my relationship with God . "
