“Mission, shmission,” Atrice told the Colorado Springs Gazette. “I didn’t even think about it.”
Then his big brother collapsed and died in a boxing ring.
Suddenly football wasn’t as important. Atrice became more serious about life and spirituality. His brother’s tragic death eventually led Atrice to want to serve a mission, and he was called to Puerto Rico and other locations in the Caribbean islands. Not only did he spread the gospel, but he said he found personal peace.
