Quarterback Kirk Cousins Discusses Faith and Football: Photogallery
A line of fans of Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins wound through the DeVos Athletics and Recreation Center on May 9, for the opportunity to have him sign copies of his new book, Game Changer: Faith, Football, & Finding Your Way.
The May 9 event welcomed students, families, and community members.
Before the book signing, Cousins shared personal stories of life, both on and off the field—stories that illustrated a dedication to his faith and to the game of football. A native of Holland, Michigan, Cousins was drafted by the Redskins in 2012 and holds many records from his career at Michigan State University.
The evening’s silent auction, benefiting Trinity student athletes through athletic scholarships, included autographed Cousins memorabilia among other items.
“I was pleased that Kirk was able to speak directly to our student athletes, our alumni, and our donor friends. I thought his words were inspiring and challenging,” said Larryl Humme, vice president for development. “There were some wonderful words of encouragement that were shared between our guest and our student athletes.”
The event was hosted by Trinity’s development office and the Trinity Athletics Club.
