It was an hour of praise, preaching, and even a little cheering from the cheerleaders. The students also cheered them on, and a prayer was said on behalf of the team.

Mills spoke to the students about a victory this Saturday, but he also had a message of unity and faith.

“We want to be a team in a culture that doesn’t see people come together, that we can be a team from different socioeconomic, demographic," Mills said. "That we can put love on display through the power of Jesus Christ, and we are thankful for that platform.”
