My favorite sportswriter, Thomas Lake, just published a fun story on Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein. Klein professes to be a Christian and seems to have a strong testimony (and unfortunately appears to have been bitten by the SI cover jinx–go Baylor Bears!).
The article is written in a different format than the long-form style Lake usually uses. It’s organized around 27 facts about Klein, the Tim Tebow-like favorite for the Heisman Trophy. Here are a few from the InsideSI site (the full article is not available, but you should find it and read it):
Did you know…
- 1. Collin Klein plays piano, mandolin and violin.
- 2. One of his household chores as a 12-year-old involved driving a pickup to the top of “Death Hill,” a 2½-mile, 6% grade hill on his family’s Colorado property bordered by a rock face and a 150-foot cliff.
- 3. When he was 14, Collin Klein promised himself he would not kiss a girl until his wedding day. He kept his promise, and first kissed his wife at the altar at their wedding on July 21, 2012.
