So you think you know the NFL? Think again. There are great dads in the league but you won’ t hear about them because they don’t leave scandals that titillate reporters looking for juicy stories to boost their careers. My buddy Benjamin Watson (below) sent me this photo as he was leaving for training to start the new season. He left his beautiful babies through tears and anguish, worrying what cost their dad’s separation might have for them.
He is not just a great dad, he is a good man. Benjamin and his wife homeschool their kids, talk to them about God and why He loves them. They do what they can to grow these beautiful four into strong, conscientious children who know right from wrong, good from bad and they teach them to love the Lord they follow. Life is rich for him and he knows it because even though he enjoys a handsome income and fends off fans who want his autograph, he knows what really matters in life: his faithful wife, four kids who adore him (and who could care less whether he wins or loses a game) and a God who calls him His son.
