On a Tuesday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys training room pool frequently used to rehabilitate injuries instead served as the venue for lives being transformed.
Three Cowboys players – safety Kavon Frazier, linebacker Anthony Hitchens, and linebacker Justin March-Lillard – were baptized at the Cowboys practice facility by the team’s chaplain, Jonathan Evans, who posted the video to his Facebook page. As of Thursday afternoon, the two-minute clip had been viewed more than two million times.
“It’s good it’s blowing up,” Frazier said. “It’s getting His name out to a lot more people who may not be believers.”
Frazier says he was baptized as a young child, but wanted to make the decision for himself as an adult.
“I was always a believer, but this was the first time I really took God seriously,” Frazier said. “I was really glad to see (my teammates) alongside me cheering us on when we were getting baptized. They cheer us on on the field, but this is a different part of life.”
“It makes us closer together and makes us more of a family than we already are.”
