Daniel Rodriguez, Floyd Mayweather, Lane Kiffin & Jose Canseco News: 8/2, Vol. 199, 3rd Edition

Lift a banner, hold it high, for my miracle's coming nigh. No more crumbs on the table, let Thy Word show me favor!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y

Daniel Rodriguez is a testament
              that dreams do come true
Daniel Rodriguez dreamed about playing college football after his playing days at Brooke Point High in Stafford, VA, but his parents’ divorce and ultimately his father’s passing four days after his graduation, derailed him from those dreams.  In order to escape, he enlisted into the Army.  After two tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, shrapnel in his body, an honorable discharge in 2010 and a promise to an Army brother-at-arms to pursue his dream, he began grueling workout that caught the eye of several colleges, especially Dabo Swiney, coach of the Clemson Tigers.  Earlier this week, Rodriguez found out he had been cleared by the NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference to join Clemson's football team as a walk-on receiver.  Congratulations Daniel and may God continue to Bless you.
