from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Like Doan and his wife and family, Fisher’s faith is also a staple in his marriage to country music star Carrie Underwood. It was one of the initial draws when the two first met.
“That was a huge part of our relationship early on,” Fisher said. “She’s got a similar story to me in our journey and walking with the Lord. We both kind of learned through the teenage years and found what was really important and made it real for us. That was a big part of our relationship and obviously still is and of our marriage now.”
For Doan, a word that he repeats over and over is “genuine.” He said it six times during a 15-minute interview with ESPN.com. And it’s clear that perhaps what he’s trying to say is that a lot of athletes cite their faith but not all walk the walk.
“Too many times athletes and people want to think it’s what they should do, and they try to do it, but it’s not genuine,” Doan said. “God called on us to be real. He didn’t call on us to fake, he called on us to be real.”
That’s one thing Doan and Fisher will never be accused of—not being genuine.
