We were student-athletes at the University of Oregon. We were the next generation of young athletes to come through the football program. We wanted to leave our legacy here- yet chaos was lurking. I could remember that day vividly, we stood over that bridge, confiding in one another- what was supposed to be a summertime tradition quickly turned into something much more. Only God knows why. Ful… l of youthfulness, friendship, and football. This story is a testament of the struggles we face, and the triumphs we conquer- with God On Our Side. This story is for football lovers, this story is for college students, this story is for anyone and everyone who has ever dealt with life's unexpected, and unknown blows. Mental Health, Trauma, and Depression are real, but so is God. I hope you enjoy this read, and I hope you find your strength!
