Our Take: Here is an interesting look at a future NFL lineman who enjoys reading religious books with an open mind.
INDIANAPOLIS — Peter Konz took a middle seat in the exit row on his plane ride to the NFL combine Wednesday with a bit of unusual reading material on his lap.
Raised Episcopalian and baptized in the same city he lifted weights in Friday, Konz started reading the Book of Mormon after taking a class on early Christianity at Wisconsin last fall.
“The older I get, the more into reading I get, (and) I try to develop my personal life a lot outside of football, try to add more things to my life,” Konz said. “I think a lot of people don’t read spiritual texts. These are holy books and a lot of people don’t read them anymore.
“There’s something to be said about the stories. And whether they’re true or not, there’s truisms in them. I try to add things to my life just to make me walk a straight path.”
