College Football Player Thanks God He’s Alive after Collapsing, Having Several Strokes
After collapsing from a serious brain injury last September, doctors did not believe college football player Christion Abercrombie would survive. Now the athlete is praising God that he is alive.
According to WSB-TV 2, Abercrombie – a former middle linebacker for Tennessee State University – collapsed during a game against Vanderbilt, from what he thought was an excruciating headache.
The student-athlete was rushed to the hospital where doctors determined that he had suffered several strokes and was suffering from a severe brain injury. CBN News reports that doctors did not expect him to make it through the night.
Upon hearing this news, athletes from both TSU and Vanderbilt decided to huddle together at the 50-yard-line and pray for their teammate and friend.
The moment was captured and posted to Twitter by Jeremy Buchanan. The photo was captioned, “Vanderbilt and Tennessee State met at the 50 yard line after the game to pray for injured player Christian Abercrombie.”

Abercrombie’s parents also prayed for their son that night as they stayed by his side. Staci Abercrombie, Christion’s mom, told WSB-TV 2 “I prayed with expectancy because I knew God was going to bless us.”
Months later, Abercrombie is alive and well.
