The “Sports Spectrum Football Special,” a new show hosted by FOX Sports NFL analyst Brock Huard, debuted Wednesday, Dec. 9. The first show featured Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins and former NFL linebacker Sam Acho.
The show is presented by Football Sunday and Compassion International, and features stories at the intersection of football and faith. Cousins discussed his 2020 NFL season, and his story of faith was also shared. Acho talked about writing his new book and how he’s transitioning to life after football. The show was streamed on YouTube, Facebook and SportsSpectrum.com.
Compassion International — a Christ-centered, church-based ministry dedicated to releasing children from poverty in Jesus’ name — recently launched its “Fill the Stadium” initiative, led by many in the pro sports community. The campaign seeks to provide essential food, medical care and support for children and their families during this pandemic. The goal is to reach 70,000 children — which would fill an average-size NFL stadium — who were left without sponsorship funding when more than 1,200 child sponsorship events had to be canceled due to the pandemic.

Football Sunday 2021 is coming on Feb. 7 and is a great opportunity to leverage football’s biggest day to bring the Gospel to your church. Featured stories in 2021 will be Acho, Houston Texans WR Brandin Cooks and Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz. You can sign up now at FootballSunday.com.
