Superstitions: I always do a prayer after the final run out or the short time we have at the line before the gun. In my prayers I simply ask God to keep me safe and help me preform to the best of my ability. I then I end the prayer by touching my feet and heart and finish my pointing to Heaven and that's my way of symbolizing giving my legs, heart, and ultimately the race to the hands of the Lord
