    It’s been months since the Titans last played a football game, but the team’s three quarterbacks were united Thursday for a different cause.

    Jake Locker, Matt Hasselbeck and Rusty Smith all participated in a chapel service at Lipscomb University, where they addressed students from the college and Lipscomb Academy about the importance of their faith and how it plays an influence in their lives.

    Hasselbeck and Locker both told students they’d changed quite a bit since their rowdier college days. Locker, for instance, noted that he often served as the host for football team parties while at the University of Washington.

    But Locker noted a particular difference in his life during the past year, after he attended a Pro Athletes Outreach conference with Hasselbeck and Smith during the past offseason. The PAO website explains that the organization “exists to unite a community of pro athletes and couples to grow as disciples of Jesus and positively impact their spheres of influence.”

    “(Hasselbeck) had gone for like 13 years, so he mentioned it to us last year and then we actually went again this year,” Locker said. “I think I already had a foundation in place from people that cared enough about me. But I was kind of blocking the path, like, `Hey, I’m a good person overall. I do the right thing most of the time.’

    “But for me, it was like doing (the right thing) most of the time isn’t good enough. Doing it all the time is what He calls us to do and what I need to start focusing on.”

    Locker said he hopes to be able to pass on some of his experiences to others, as he did Thursday.

    “I think having the opportunity to share your story and the walk you have is an important part of what God calls us to do,” Locker said. “I think I’ve become really more aware of that in my last year. It’s something that’s more important to me now and I want to make more of an effort to take advantage of opportunities to do that.”
