    • Olivia Brooks: One runner matters.
    • Thomas Hill: John, if I asked you who you are, what's the first thing that comes to mind?
    • John Harrison: Um, I'm a white, American male.
    • [laughs]
    • Thomas Hill: Yeah, that's for sure.
    • [laughs again]
    • Thomas Hill: Is there anything else?
    • John Harrison: Well, I'm a Christian.
    • Thomas Hill: And what does that mean?
    • John Harrison: It means follower of Christ.
    • Thomas Hill: And how important is that?
    • John Harrison: It's very important.
    • Thomas Hill: Interesting how it's so far down your list.
    • John Harrison: I'm a basketball coach.
    • John Harrison: Wait a minute, I could easily have said Christian first.
    • Thomas Hill: Yeah, but you didn't. Look, John, your identity will be tied to whatever you give your heart to. It doesn't sound like the Lord has first place.
    • John Harrison: You're calling me a bad Christian?
    • Thomas Hill: Let me be a little direct: last time you were here, you said you'd pray for me. Did you?
    • [Looks down, grimaces]
    • John Harrison: No.
    • Thomas Hill: No. For someone who knows the Lord, you're acting like somebody who doesn't. Which makes me wonder: what have you allowed to define you? When you lost your team, it didn't just disappoint you, it devastated you. Something, or someone, will have first place in your heart. But when you find your identity in the One Who created you, it'll change your whole perspective.
    • Thomas Hill: And if that's stripped away?
    • John Harrison: Well, I'm also a history teacher.
    • Thomas Hill: Okay. We take that away. Who are you?
    • John Harrison: Well, I'm a husband. I'm a father.
    • Thomas Hill: And God forbid that should ever change. But if it does, who are you?
    • John Harrison: I don't understand this game.
    • Thomas Hill: It's not a game, man. Who are you?
    • Hannah Scott: To coach Harrison: Ask me who I am.
    • John Harrison: Who is Hannah Scott?
    • Hannah Scott: I am created by God. He designed me. So I'm not a mistake. His Son died for me, just so I could be forgiven. He picked me to be His own, so I'm chosen. He redeemed me, so I am wanted. He showed me Grace, just so I could be saved. He has a future for me, because He loves me! So I don't wonder anymore, Coach Harrison. I AM a child of God! I just wanted you to know.
