2. His newfound faith has produced a tremendous outpouring of love. Shortly after it happened, Tyree and his wife started a non-profit that counsels teenagers. One of these kids was quoted in the article, saying, “[Tyree] doesn’t come off like he’s a big football player… I think of him as my uncle. I just love him.”
