tandy geralds was the head coach at woodlawn. he was very dedicated and he put all of his time into football and when he wasn't coaching, he was at home studying the game. coach geralds eventually became a christian after he watched all the players and other coaches on his team let Jesus Christ into their hearts. he was like a father to some of the boys on his team who didn't really have dads. His love for the game was one of the reasons for Woodlawn's success.
Let Jesus into your hearts!!!!!!
tony nathan was one of the black students that was brought to woodlawn. he played basketball and football but mostly football. his mom didn't really want him playing football because she didn't want him to get hurt. coach geralds eventually convinced nathan's mom to let him play football and he ended up being the star player on the team because he was so talented and so fast. once he became a christian and let Christ into his heart, he changed the game for woodlawn.
congratulations!!!! your married!!!!
Goebel had a troubled past, he used to sell moonshine but stopped before he got caught and he was an alcoholic. Eventually he allowed his friend to take him to a church where they told him to let Jesus Christ into his heart, he did as they said and converted to christianity. After he started to have faith he wanted to tell his story about his past and to spread christianity. He also tells the players that they need to let Christ into their hearts which changed the team for the best.
Hank Erwin was the team pastor after Goebel. He used to be a really good baseball player and he wanted to play professionally until one summer in college he was working in a steel mill and had his foot ran over by a beam. He had half of his foot amputated and was told he could never walk or play baseball again. He converted to christianity cause he needed to rely on Jesus to get him through it. Since then he’s been spreading christ's love to whoever he can.
