This story published on Christmas seems to be comparing Nebraska reserve running back Curenski Gilleylen to Jesus:
That Friday night when the team arrived in Wyoming, there was a chapel service, a normal procedure the night before a game for those who are interested.
(Running back coach Ron) Brown was there. So were many of his running backs, including starters Rex Burkhead and Tyler Legate.
“Our chapel service was on unselfishness and serving, and washing each other’s feet,” Brown said. “I asked the guys, ‘OK, guys, in our room, ‘Who’s been that guy?’ And they’d already seen Curenski get up early and come to the practice session and not get on the plane.
“I looked up and I saw Rex and I saw Tyler, and I saw tears streaming down their faces. And I couldn’t hold it in. Because we realized that’s the example we’re talking about.”
For those not familiar, here is what the feet washing refers to.
