Athlete tells 'another side''

At a recent missionary-oriented fireside in Hyde Park Chapel here, a professional football player drew a parallel between his Church membership and his career. Steve Young, a quarterback with the San Francisco '49ers, explained how easy it is to become worn down and to lose sight of the ultimate goal. "I have found I always need to have things in my heart that mean the world to me, like the gospel of Jesus Christ," he said. After the fireside, the athlete visited with members and their non-LDS guests. One of the missionaries in attendance said Young's talk gave those who "are not yet members an opportunity to see another side of Mormon life."
