View Full Version : Case Keenum's Eye Black

He has referenced a Bible verse on his eye black for every game but one - the UTEP game.

Keenum isn't just the son of a football coach. He is the son of a football coach who has devout religious beliefs. Steve Keenum is the area director of the Big Country FCA in Abilene. Case has been attending FCA camps and functions for as long as he can remember.

The coach's son calmly drove the Cougars 77 yards for the winning touchdown. His fifth TD pass of the day was a 28-yarder to Patrick Edwards with 21 seconds left.

I found out real quickly when I got out on my own that I can't do it on my own, Keenum said. I can't deal with all the stresses of being a college football player and an athlete and a student, a Christian, a role model and all this stuff on my own. I need somebody else in control. Because if I think I've got it under control, he definitely reminds me that I don't.

If I start stressing and worrying about stuff, it's kind of slapping God in the face and saying, I don't think You have it under control.' He has a plan, and his plan is better than anything I can even imagine.

Especially alert Cougars fans will notice there is no Bible-ography entry from an untelevised 58-41 loss Oct. 3 at UTEP. Keenum winced.

UTEP, I didn't do a verse, Keenum said. It was a night game. But I do a verse every time now.

He must have been wearing the verses tonight. Another great outing in a miracle win for the Coogs!

My wife called me with three minutes left in the game and the Coogs trailing by 8. I told her I wasn't worried, that Case would bring them back. The man personifies poise and clutch.
