Jake Byrne - New Orleans Saint from HCCAR
by Holly Michael (Jake's Mom)

Jake Byrne

Jake just signed with the New Orleans Saints! We waited all weekend, watching the draft. Jake told me this morning,"whatever happens, it's in God's hands. He knows what to do." He didn't get picked...we went to the church to prepare for tomorrow's service and knelt in the McNeleys chapel to pray for him. Then, I got the text!
