During the March for Life in Washington, D.C. last week, head coach Jim Harbaugh shared the exciting news that 70 of his players chose to be baptized last year.
"There's a spiritual mission to our team and I'm inspired by them," says Harbaugh during an interview with Jon Root at the march. "The young players on our team are incredible examples."
There are just over 100 players on the roster of the University of Michigan football team, the Wolverines. That means over half the players were inspired to take this step of faith last year.
Many of the players are also outspoken about their Christian faith, including Wolverines running back, Donovan Edwards.
"I just thank God that he's allowed me to [play football]," says Edwards. "He showed me the ups, the downs, and it's about what I do with it. It's about if I'm going to fall from it or continue to rise from adversity and trials and tribulation."
