Earlier this year on Easter, Jets (backup) QB Tim Tebow spoke at a Texas church and drew an estimated 15,000 people. Chiefs LB Caleb Campbell is speaking at a church in Carthage, MO this weekend but I'm gonna go ahead and say he won't draw 15,000 people.
"I'm looking forward to speaking this weekend," he said. "Whenever you can go through a trial or go through a hardship in life and you can be a blessing to another person because of this hardship, it's a humbling experience. I've been blessed with this platform and having an opportunity to impact another person's life, I'm learning more and more that that's what life is all about."
Campbell knows something about trials and hardships. He was drafted by the Detroit Lions in 2008 and planned to participate in training camp before the Army changes the rules which required him to serve two years of active duty before heading to the NFL. He talks a little bit about that transition in the Carthage Press article.
