Apollos Hester

East View High School Football player Apollos Hester gave an inspirational, uplifting interview after his team defeated Vandegrift by one point.

Hester told TWC News Austin reporter Lauren Mickler that he knew his team would be victorious because he truly believed.

"It's an awesome feeling when you truly believe that you're going to be successful," he said. "And if it doesn't pay off, you continue to give God the glory!"

So far the video garnered over 2 million views on YouTube.com.

If football doesn't pan out, Hester has a career in the church pulpit.

    I was phone posting. Am phone posting. Hiding out upstairs waiting on something :lol:
    In response to to the drug discussion I think:
    I always thought the logic was that with murder you kill one person whereas with drugs you kill a lot of ppl, communities, economies, etc.
    ___________
    I "get that" but forgive me for this logic but most people don't asked to be killed or murdered. If they do then that's called suicide... Unless you Kavorkien, Dr :tea:
    These people doing drugs buying it and asking for it. I know I know they got an addiction. But they first asked for it :shrugs: Unless they was a crack baby....
    So you mean to tell me I got to go to jail cause I am a good salesman?? :wtf: And before someone come for me my Diddy was narcotic abuser. Still might be. Ask him if you see him. I ain't seen him since he rode off for some bread and milk in my mama car was I was in midda school :tea:
