Why I love college football recruiting…

Posted: January 5, 2010 in Church Leadership, College Football

It might sound a little fanatical or maybe a little odd, but I get a tremendous amount of enjoyment with watching the way recruiting goes down in January and February.  Sometimes it can be as exciting as the bowl games…like if you are watching Cotton Bowl.

I know a few people that feel the same way and I’m sure there are tons of reason for their enjoyment, but here is what I particularly enjoy:

  • The drama of seeing which college the big name recruits pick.
  • Seeing whether the experts were right about a big name recruit 3 or 4 years later.
  • Seeing how one player can affect a team’s destiny.
  • Watching the team be rejuvenated by the addition of some talented defensive back or wide receiver.
  • Learning that a 5-star recruit didn’t even make it on campus, because they did something dumb or couldn’t qualify.
  • Watching a player who wasn’t ranked highly become an All-American or win the Heisman.
  • Seeing a 3-Star recruit from high school playing on Sundays in the NFL.

Maybe one of the biggest reasons I like the drama is because it really does make a difference when one team gets good players.  Sure a team with average players can pull an upset, but they won’t be successful long-term.  It’s no different in the church.  God has teamed up good preachers with good Executive Pastors and churches have blown up.  He has teamed up great preachers with great worship leaders and the same thing has happened.

I don’t know the destiny of Axiom Church, but I can’t wait to see who God pulls together to change the spiritual destiny of thousands in Gainesville!
