THIS IS EPISODE 222 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Jason Avant was selected by the Eagles in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Michigan. The wide receiver played eight seasons in Philadelphia, catching passes from Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick and Nick Foles. After his tenure with the Eagles ended in 2013, he finished his career with Carolina and Kansas City before retiring following the 2015 season.
Avant played in eight playoff games with Philadelphia, including the 2008 NFC championship game against the Arizona Cardinals.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Avant about being a spiritual leader in the Eagles locker room, reading through the Bible with his quarterback (Foles) in 2013, serving in youth ministry during his time in Philadelphia, and coming to faith in Christ during his time in college.

The idea that GOD himself put on human flesh has always amazed me. Flesh representing weakness and human desire for what’s wrong. That’s stooping very low for GOD. Just think of a person putting on a worm suit, that’s JESUS putting on human flesh. Love is blind because HE came to purchase us back with HIS own life! Who pays top dollar(HIS life) for raggedy clothes(Us)? Nobody, but JESUS! HE loved us in our imperfection and wants a relationship with us in our imperfection! Merry CHRISTmas! #together #meaningofchristmas #christmas #truelove
