(McCoy has many, many other accomplishments not listed. These are only a few.)

Christian Views:

His Facebook page proclaims: “I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!”

Here is a guy willing to publicly proclaim the Lord as his Savior. I know fellow Christians that aren’t famous and don’t have all the pressure that comes with being famous that do not do the same. And yet here is a guy who grew up on the rough South Side of Oklahoma City who has everything monetary that a man could desire and yet he still regularly proclaims the Lord publicly. In college Gerald McCoy was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and has always been open about his relationship with Christ.

Finally, here is another Facebook post: “Surgery successful!! Now I’m back to gaming!! God is good!!!”

God Bless him. For more information about McCoy, visit this Link.
