Even though St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has won a Super Bowl ring as a player, has the most career wins of any Tennessee Titans head coach ever and has established a successful career coaching the sport he loves, there was still something missing from his life that kept him from being fully satisfied.
In a new video released Monday by the "I Am Second" movement, the 57-year-old Rams coach explained that although he grew up in the church, he was "turned off" by religion early in his life and never had time as a National Football League head coach to accept the Lord in his heart until he came to the realization in 2010 that he needed Christ to survive life's grind.
