He asked me if this has got to be

the best moment of your life, right?

But I said, "No, this is notthe best moment of my life.

"This is third.

"This is probably going to go down

"as the third best moment of my life.

"The first being when I gavemy life to Jesus Christ.

"The second when I married my wife.

"And this will be third."

- [Narrator] Case experiencedthe highest of highs

as a professional athleteyet manages to keep

every highlight in perspective.

- Those things that we have in this world

that are of the world,man they don't last.

You know, they're over and

if you count on those thingsto be everything for you,

they're just going to let you down.

Just like we had anincredible moment one week

and it let us down the next week.

But if you hold onto yourrelationship with Christ

and your relationship with your family

and those people that will bewith you, that care about you,

that's what's most important.

No matter what happens, I'mgoing to play as hard as I can

and I'm going to give the glory to God.

That's no matter what, God,

I want my light to shine for You.

to make it in the NFL.

You're not tall enough, strong enough.

You know, you can't throw it far enough.

You don't have a strong enough arm.

But for me it was a lesson in

you've got to listen tothe people in your life

that really mean something.

Your family, your friends, yourcoaches that believe in you,

but most of all you needto believe in your Savior,

in Jesus and His identity for you.

with his life in themidst of the pressures

of professional sports.

And He has been theremore than anybody else

could possibly have even tried to be.

- [Narrator] Thisoff-season Case was traded

to the Denver Broncos andnamed the starting quarterback.

- To have John Elway say and introduce me

as the starting quarterback

of the Denver Broncos is incredible.

And to remember that, as a kid,

I was John Elway for Halloweenthree Halloweens in a row.

And I had my little sevenjersey and I rocked it.

I know that God has meright where He wants me

and He's equipped me for thetime that He has me here.

I'm holding up my end of thebargain as well as I can.

And I know that God, weknow through His promises,

through His word thatHe's going to hold up His
