Five-Star Texas Longhorn Commit Gives Glory To God Following Championship Win

via Bally Sports Southwest

High school football star Colin Simmons, following his team’s victory in the Texas Class 6A Division 1 championship game, attributed his success to God and carried a Bible onto the field.

Simmons, who plays EDGE, won Defensive MVP with an impressive performance.

“It ain’t nobody but God,” he said. (Trending: Prominent LGBTQ Activist Arrested Over Disturbing Charges)

“I am who I am. I’m just going to keep it real with you today. It ain’t nobody but God. God himself.”

“Back-to-back straight up like that.”

“We wouldn’t be nothing without God,” Simmons said.

This marked Duncanville High School’s second consecutive state championship. Simmons, a highly sought-after recruit, ultimately chose to play for the University of Texas.

“In his sophomore and junior seasons with Duncanville, Simmons was an unstoppable force off of the edge, tallying 147 tackles, 33 tackles for loss, 34.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles in those two years,” Sports Illustrated wrote.

“Simmons currently holds 43 offers in total, and ranks as a 5-star plus recruit, the No. 3 player in Texas, the No. 2 player at his position in the country, and the No. 9 overall player nationally, per On3.”

“I’m from Texas, it’s the home state team,” Simmons said of choosing the Longhorns.

“Austin is an upcoming city and there’s a lot of potential I see out there. I feel like Austin, Texas is going to be — and not just UT itself — up in the next couple of years. Their pitch is honestly just that they need me and want me real bad, especially at my position.”

He emphasized the importance of his faith and expressed a desire to use his platform to make a difference, particularly for those affected by autism, including his younger half-brother.

“God put me in this world to help others,” Simmons said.

“Me playing football, I have a reason why I want to make it. Why I want to play. Who I want to do it for.”
