REPORTER: WISCONSIN TRAYVON

MAKING A NAME FOR

HIMSELF.

IN HIS JUNIOR YEAR, THIS IS THE

SECOND YEAR AS A STARTER AND

HOPED TO FOLLOW NBA ALL STAR JIM

JACKSON.

HE SAYS PEOPLE HAD HIGH

EXPECTATIONS THE MOMENT HE

STEPPED ON THE COURT.

IT IS HIS FAITH IN THE LORD THAT

HAS HELPED HIM.

I AM GOOD.

I AM NOT THAT GOOD WITHOUT THE

LORD'S PRESENCE.

I AM JUST AVERAGE.

THROUGH HIM, YOU CAN BE

EXTRAORDINARY.

REPORTER: AFTER SITTING THE

BENCH MOST OF HIS FRESHMAN YEAR,

HE CAME OFF THE BENCH AND WON

THE STARTING JOB.

KEY TO TURNING THAT AROUND WAS

HARD WORK AND FOCUSSING ON THE

LORD.

I FELT THAT HE WAS, I WASN'T

IN HIS PRESENCE, I STARTED TO

WORRY.

I STARTED TO WORRY ABOUT FAILURE

AND NOT PLAY AND NOT PLAY LOOSE.

WHEN I AM WITH HIM, I AM OUT

THERE AND YOU ARE NOT STOPPING

ME.

> REPORTER: IN THE LAST TWO

SEASONS, TRAYVON HAS EMERGED AS

A POINT GUARD.

TO HIM IT IS MORE THAN PART OF A

JOB, IT IS FOLLOWING CHRIST'S

EXAMPLE.

I KNEW ABOUT IT.

HE DIED ON THE CROSS, AS I AM

SEEKING IT, TO SEE WHAT HE DID

IS TRULY AMAZING, LIKE I COULD

NEVER FA THOM IT UNTIL I SEE HIS

WAYS.

MAKES ME WANT TO EM LATE HIM

EVEN MORE.

REPORTER: AS TRAYVON LEADS

THE BADGERS INTO ANOTHER

TOURNAMENT, HE WANTS EVERYONE TO

HEAR HIS MESSAGE.

SEEK THE WAY OF HIS

RIGHTEOUSNESS.

YOU EVERYTHING AND

MORE.

REPORTER: NBA SCOUTS AND FANS

PROBING INTO HIS STATS, TRAYVON

HOPES THEY SEE HE IS MORE THAN

HIS FATHER'S SON.

I WANT THEM TO SEE SOMETHING

ABOUT THAT KID IS OUT OF THE

ORDINARY.

WHEN THEY DO THAT, CAN REDIRECT

THAT FROM ME UP TO HIM.

THAT IS THE BIGGEST THING I WANT

THEM TO SEE.

I CAN CARE LESS ABOUT ME.

I WANT TO GIVE ALL THE GLORY TO

THE KINGDOM AND TO THE LORD, TO

JESUS CHRIST, BECAUSE WITHOUT

HIM I AM NOTHING.

PAT: THAT YOUNG MAN HAS GOT

IT RIGHT.

WITHOUT HIM I AM NOTHING.

THAT IS WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS.

I AM THE LORD, THAT IS MY NAME,

MY GLORY, I WILL NOT SHARE WITH

ANOTHER.

APOSTLE PAUL SAYS WITHOUT HIM, I

CAN DO NOTHING.

MY LIPS WILL TURN TO CLAY.

WITHOUT HIM, I AM -- WITH HIM I

AM EVERYTHING, WITHOUT HIM I AM

NOTHING.
