Teen Thought Everyone Was Watching Injured Teammate, Had No Idea Someone Snapped This Photo Of Him
A viral photo reveals a North Carolina high school football player who is praying for an injured teammate. It was Colleen Michele who posted the photo. Dillon Goedeck from Guilford High School was captured as he was kneeling, and praying, for his teammate Grayson Bonomo. He had been injured during the game. Turns out he is Michele’s son, the woman who posted the photo.
Here’s what she wrote in the post:
“This photo was taken at the North East Guilford football game. It was sent to me while my son was in the ER. This is something every parent should he proud of. I don’t know who took the photo but I want to say thank you. This is news worthy…..this is how our children should handle things when they have no control over the situation. Thank you again to whoever you are!!!”
Many praised Goedeck as the photo went viral.
Here’s some comments:
“Now that’s a real team player. Praying that the player injured has a speedy recovery. His family has done an awesome job raising him not to be ashamed of his faith.”
“You are so right. We definitely need to see more things like this in our news instead of all the hurt, anger and violence that our teens and society are going through today. I love that this young man took it straight to the man upstairs, to almighty god. Why? Because only he can!”
Yet another photo has been going around showing a Mississippi high school player praying for his injured teammate. He has also received much praise from locals.
“Richton High School is a small school in MS. Total K-12, we have perhaps 450 students, and everyone knows everyone…well. I snapped this picture of Daylen Jones, not just ‘taking a knee’ for his injured teammate, but praying,” Cathy Smith Green wrote.
“In this time where organized prayer is challenged in courts, and schools in fear of lawsuits, cower against athiest demands, it is comforting to know, these kids, who have been brought up right, don’t have to be ‘lead’ in prayer.”
