I will say, they are a precious family. And this video did not do much to cure my desire to adopt. Andy might not thank you for that! :) He's not on board with the "just ONE more" idea, yet!

Okay, this is what I've been trying to tell people. Win or lose, when those Dawgs come home to Athens, Mark Richt is still their coach. He's changing lives through his enormous faith, and I really don't care if what happens on the field (too much) anymore. What a testimony of "walking the walk". jat

When it's all said and done, no matter what the Dawgs' record is, they come back to Athens and Coach Richt. He is changing lives everyday because he "walks the walk". It's fun to win, but I am much more interested in the character building he's doing with those young men. God Bless you and yours Coach Richt.

Mark gets paid to win football games & at that he does a great job. The bonus he brings to the University of Georgia and its family is far more valuable. That bonus is that he teaches how to be a winner in life and he leads by example, not mere words.
Being a Seminole, I am very proud for the years he gave to our University. Georgia should be equally proud.

This Gamecock just wants to say what a class act the Bulldogs have in Mark Richt... there is not a finer man to be found... y'all should be proud...

My family are all UT Vol fans, but we admire and respect the Richt family so much. When Mark was the newly hired Dawgs coach, we attended the UT-GA game in Knoxville and chatted with some GA fans who talked more about his ethics and value system than his coaching ability. Time has proved them to be right on the money...and his coaching acumen is topnotch too. Congrats Richts, and the entire Georgia football family.

Sam Duffey said...

I love to see him win games since that's his job. Most important, I am proud that he uses his opportunity to influence young men. For that, I am amazed!

I'm a Tide and True Bama fan who lives in the state of Georgia, and I have to say that I admire the entire Richt family, but moreso after seeing this video. God bless them all!

I am a Tide and True Bama football fan living in the state of Georgia. I have always thought of Coach and Mrs. Richt as good people, because you never hear anything negative about them. But this video? Brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. God bless that entire family! I think way more of him now than I ever did before!

I am also a Bama that has always respected the Richt family, but this clip brings a new found respect to the table. No doubt this family should be commended for their commitment to these children. May the Lord continue to bless each and every one of them.

Well, when the "good ole coach" quits cursing on National Television, then maybe I will be convinced!

JERRIE said...

That was absolutly inspiring. I don't think I've ever been prouder to be a UGA fan.

stmace said...

I have always admired the man for the coach he is, now even more for the wonderful example he is to his family. He and his wife are amazing Christian people,we should all be able to love as they love these children.

Mark and Katghryn are blessed people for the family they now have. What a story.....from a true GATOR....

Your family and friends are showing and proving that God Is Love and he himself has given you the ultimate gifts to spread to others through his promise and your actions.

I have been a DAWG fan my whole life, but never prouder since Mark Richt has been our coach. His faith in the Lord and dedication to his family provides a wonderful example for all of us!

Mark, you are truly a Man of God and you and your family will be blessed for being such blessings to others.

Deb said...

There should have been a warning on this post..."Kleenex Required".

I live in Georgia and am a huge fan of the Bulldogs, but an even bigger fan of a man and wife that can open their hearts to children.

Incredible story. I have tears of joy. I'm an Auburn Tiger fan who won't feel so bad about getting beat by Georgia as long as Mark is your coach.
What a blessing this family must be to all who come in contact with them.May we all take a lesson and follow God's words as they have done.This would change the world!

What examples of faithful Christians. Coach Richt will always have the respect of the Nole fans that remember the glory days of when he was at FSU.
