A Champion for Christ: The Zach Ertz Story

Dr. James Dobson
Zach Ertz
In the midst of his parents’ separation, sports became an outlet for Zach Ertz, who was eventually drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles as a tight end in 2013. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton sits down with Zach to discuss his journey to the Eagles. Following a last-minute play during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals, Zach became a foe to some fans. From an earthly perspective, that was one of the worst weeks of Zach’s life, but from an eternal perspective, it was the best thing that ever happened, as it led him to spiritual revival and brotherhood.
