Journeyman quarterback Case Keenum, who is now playing for the Cleveland Browns, might switch teams frequently, but his faith and identity as a Christian football player remain steadfast. “I’m not a football player that happens to be a Christian,” he told CBS Sports. “I’m a Christian who happens to be a football player. Faith doesn’t leave when I hang up my cleats and put on my street clothes.”

In his memoir Playing for More: Trust Beyond What You Can See, Keenum describes becoming reacquainted with childhood friend Kimberly at FCA events and eventually marrying her. “The key to our marriage,” he writes, “is that our foundation is not in each other—it’s in Christ.”
