Fans who have followed Bryce Brown's football career thus far, know the East High running back is the nation's 2009 top football recruit.

But many fans may be surprised to know the standout shares a love and commitment to his faith.

"I felt like God touches people through," Brown said. "It's about reaching out to other people and giving them a chance to get connected with God."

It was a decision from a higher power that led him to pick the University of Tennessee for his collegiate career.

"It was a decision that came from the heart," Brown said. "It felt like Tennessee was a place I could go spiritually, more than any other school."

His commitment to Tennessee was made in large part to a close relationship he developed with Vol's assistant coach Eddie Gran. But the two also shared a common interest in faith, which made Bryce's decision an easy one.

"When I first met coach, I could tell right then the way he was as a person was something that I was used to being around Bryan [Butler]," Brown said. "I knew that I could help him and he could help me in our spiritual lives."

Humbled by his talents as a football player, Bryce plays as an inspiration to others. To seek the faith and believe that anything is possible.

"I believe that God has put it on me, so that if they see me then they will see him," Brown said. "This is not about me, this is what God has for me to do and letting his will be done."
