“It’s all God. I can’t do nothing but thank God.” – Christion Abercrombie [#ItsAllGod #DoNothingButThankGod #ThankGod]
Former Tennessee State University football player Christion Abercrombie visited campus this weekend for his first homecoming.
Last fall, the 21-year-old suffered a serious head injury during a TSU-Vanderbilt football game that nearly cost him his life.
After spending months in physical therapy, Christion Abercrombie is able to walk and talk which many call a miracle, including his mother.
“A 20-year-old at the time, career taken away from him. He’s played ball since the age of five, had dreams of going into the NFL and he worked hard at the age of 5 to 20 to get there and now he’s 21 and he’s came to the realistic part of it that ‘I’m not going to play football again’. So he wakes up with a smile, he laughs, he prays, he’s enjoying life so it’s just amazing.”

According to Christion Abercrombie, he and his family continue to trust in God that he will make a full recovery. Christion Abercrombie is considered partially disabled, but they know things can change.
Christion Abercrombie dreams to play football in the NFL are over but he is not ruling out coaching one day. Walking around campus today Christion Abercrombie thanked TSU for its support and prayers of others during his recovery.
“It’s a blessing I remember when I was learning how to talk, walk, and eat again but now look at me now. It’s all God. I can’t do nothing but thank God. During that week when I was first in the hospital I asked my family to get closer to God.”
