Passing Toward The Prize

Coach Turner leaned forward and looked directly at Colton. “Look here Preston. You have to decide if you are going to be a leader or a quitter. A leader FINDS a way to lead. A quitter doesn’t bother to try. It’s easy to quit. Don’t pick the easy way.” Life isn’t turning out the way Colton had hoped it would and now his high school football days may be over. He’s in the Class of ’82. His father has accepted appointment at a church in Savannah, Georgia. Colton is in a different school and on a football team, which clearly does not want him there. He is hundreds of miles away from the friendly small-town Tompkinsville where his friends and his girlfriend, Belle, reside. Change is difficult. Starting over and dealing with these changes is a challenge for any age but for a 15-year-old preacher’s kid, it only makes his life more complex. His father may be a preacher but that does not make him immune to the consequences of sin and the need for forgiveness. Colton will have to learn to trust God that all things will work together for good. If you loved the stories of “Facing the Giants” and “Remember the Titans” you will enjoy rooting for Colton Preston.
