T. C. Stallings: From crime, violence and drugs to a successful athlete and Hollywood actor
26:35 | Nov 2, 2021
T.C. Stallings, professional football athlete turned actor, is best known for his award-winning role in the #1 box-office film War Room. But throughout his life, he sensed a spiritual battle from a young age enduring challenging, life-altering circumstances.
T.C. was desperate to escape the housing projects of Cleveland, where he grew up surrounded by gangs, crime, violence, and drugs. Raised by a single mom, T.C. was one of six children from a different father, who T.C. did not meet until he was 18 years old.
It was an encounter with the law and witnessing the mistake of others that motived T.C. to focus on football and become the first in his family to earn a college diploma.
In his memoir, Eyes Fixed: My True Life Story, T.C. recounts poignant moments from his life, including professional failures, unfulfilled football dreams, personal insecurities, starting a family, and becoming a successful actor.
He shares his amazing testimony with us today on Connections.
