Jim Denison wrote this in the Denison Forum… I wanted to share this with you:
Best team. Best season. Best player. And for this season, perhaps even the best coach. Of all time.”
That’s how CBS Sports begins its coverage this morning of LSU’s victory over Clemson in last night’s NCAA football championship game. LSU’s coach, Ed Orgeron, is one of the best stories of this improbable season
Orgeron became the interim coach of the University of Southern California football team in 2013 but failed to get the job permanently. HE told his wife. Kelly, “Besides the day that I buried my father, this is the worst day of my life.”
She replied, “No, it’s not,” and explained that “God had a better plan.” Orgeron said, “Whew! It better be good.”
Orgeron became head coach of the LSU Tigers in 2016. His quarterback, JOe Burrow, won the Heisman Trophy this year. Last night, his team won the title, stopping Clemson’s twenty-nine-game winning streak.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney’s faith has become well known over the years, as has the faith of quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Now we know that Orgeron and his wife are followers of Jesus as well. JD
