Tight end turned singer, and more…

Ben Utecht

Is it a good thing if you’re a NFL player and your coach says: “However, I always thought his real impact would be in Christian music.” My sarcasm tends to think, “Gee coach, thanks a lot.” After listening to cuts off of Cincinnati Bengals tight end Ben Utecht’s debut album, I tend to think that once again Tony Dungy, father of above quote is correct. The album, creatively named, Ben Utecht, is good. And considering that Utecht now plays for the Bengals, who haven’t set the world  on fire lately, his impact will  probably be in Christian music. Good call coach!

Here’s the story in Christianity Today, and here’s an Australian story and here’s his website.

Here’s another story in the Baylor Alumni magazine about Baylor’s historic season.

 

A Christian Champion?
