I still try to keep those priorities of Coach Bryant in mind. - Marty when he was 47 years old

"When Marty Lyons first met Coach Bear Bryant in summer of  1975, he was shocked with the way their meeting started. Coach Bear said, 'There are four things I want you to do while you are here. Number 1, always be proud of your religion. Number 2, always be proud of your family. Number 3, get an education. Number 4, if you have time, let's win some football games.'" 

"Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well" - Matthew 6:33

God should ALWAYS be number one in our lives.
