Bacon was even better man than football player

I am writing this to address the Glenn Robinson letter about Coy Bacon and having his name added to the Nation Football League Hall of Fame in Canton.

When he passed away, I was very sorry.

He came to my church years ago and I heard his testimony of his past life and how God had turned his life around. He preached a message and also tried to reach the young people. And he did.

He had a a wonderful way of singing a song but what I remember most about him is that he was a humble man trying to make a difference in this world. I remember not Coy Bacon the football player but Coy Bacon the man and his message.

God Bless Mr. Robinson and all who are working to get this done.
