The University of Michigan head coach, Jim Harbaugh, during the 51st annual March for Life Rally in Washington D.C. last week, revealed a stunning stat, stating that 70 of his players had been baptized over the past season.
Harbaugh, who is the coach of this year’s college football championship team shared the surprising news in an interview with faith and sports commentator Jon Root, on the sidelines of the pro-life rally.
“There’s a spiritual mission to our team,” Harbaugh said. “I’m inspired by them…[it’s] inspirational. The young players on our team are incredible examples.”
There are more than 100 players on the roster for the 2024 College Football Champs. This indicates “a mini revival” has been underway this past season with more than half of the Michigan Wolverines declaring their faith in Jesus by getting baptized in 2023, Harbaugh added, according to CBN News.
Several of the players are outspoken born-again Christians who aren’t afraid to talk about their faith in Christ.
