Huskers For Christ – Eric Hagg

University of Nebraska Football - Defensive Back
I grew up in a broken home and didn’t have the opportunity to attend church, but my high school coach encouraged me to attend an FCA camp after my junior year.  It was there that I first met Prince Amukamara who would later become one of my teammates at Nebraska.  While my main reason for attending FCA camp was to get noticed by college coaches who I thought might offer me a scholarship, something much more important took place at camp.

While I remember my dad reading me a few bible stories when I was younger, I never understood that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and that he paid the penalty of sin with his death on the cross for sinners.  I had never realized that everyone is a sinner that needs to be forgiven by God.  This is exactly the message I heard at camp that summer.  However, it wasn’t until I returned to that same camp the next year that I turned from my sin and placed my trust and faith in Christ.

Since coming to Nebraska, the Lord has taught me the importance of studying the Bible.  I try to read and study it every day.  Now, it has become my playbook for life.

Favorite verse: 2 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.”
