Indianapolis Colts coach Frank Reich turns the post-game interview into a church service as he delivers mini-sermon, reciting Scripture and quoting the popular Christian song, “In Christ Alone.”
NFL Press Conference
After defeating the Buffalo Bills 41-15 on Sunday’s game, Colts’ Coach Frank Reich amazed everyone in the post-game interview. During the NFL press conference, he transcended the typical interview and delivered a mini-sermon.
“I want to give a personal account to where I found my strength for the journey,” he boldly declared in front of reporters. “The reason I’m doing that here and now is because, almost 30 years ago, after a really big game.. Right down the hall in a press conference, I shared the lyrics to a song that meant a lot to me. That really spoke to where I get my strength from.”

Moreover, the coach revealed his intention of sharing the message. And that is to “encourage someone who’s climbing their own mountain right now.”
He then recited some lyrics from “In Christ Alone.”
“In Christ alone I place my trust, and find my glory in the power of the cross,” he declared. “In every victory, let it be said of me, that source of strength, that source of hope, is Christ alone.”
Finally, he concluded the song with his favorite line, “I seek no greater honor than just to know Him more.”
Furthermore, Frank also reminisced the moment he recited the same song in 1993. It happened after his then-team scored the biggest comeback in NFL history, according to the report.
He shared Hebrews 13:8, highlighting God’s nature in the Scripture.
“So even though it was almost 30 years ago, when I read those words here in this stadium. This week, I was reminded Hebrews 13:8 says, ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever,'” he declared. “It’s crazy that we’re here, but we’re here some 30 years later, not living in the past. But rather attempting to press on to what is ahead. So my encouragement is to keep climbing and to find the strength and power that you need in Jesus Christ.”
