to God for the grace upon his life.
“I cannot thank God enough for all that he has done for me. When I look at where I am today and where I come from, I can only give God more thanks because it is clear that I am a product of grace.
“His grace has been upon me throughout my playing career and even now that I am retired he has kept me waxing stronger and stronger by the day. To Him alone do I give all the glory!”
