“It’s a pretty cool night, something that’s been fun to be a part of for a number of years,” says Quarterback Travis Lulay. He adds players of different faiths –and even some from the other team– take part in a prayer circle post-game, something he says can help put life into perspective.
“You know promoting a culture of family, that is so common in most people’s faith traditions.”
Lulay says the event is well received, even by people who aren’t religious. “We as a team pray before games. I mean there are guys who may choose not to pray or feel a different type of way, but guys are holding hands and locked arms or whatever we do, and it’s a unifying thing.”
The Lions host the Edmonton Eskimos tonight. Players and coaches will be speaking to the crowd after the game about their beliefs, families and football.
