Anthony Hitchens, Justin March-Lillard, and Kavon Frazier, three Dallas Cowboys players, got baptized last month in their training facility and the video of their baptism went viral.

The trio said they wanted to send a message to the younger generation, that it’s okay “to come out of the closet in their faith.”

“They don’t see their friends really worshiping God and really talking about God,” Frazier told The Undefeated. “Even me growing up, I went to a Christian school all my life, but I really wasn’t going around talking about God. But now it’s different … but from this video, hopefully younger people will start learning [about God] a little bit quicker.”

The video shows the Cowboys’ chaplain, Pastor John Evans, baptizing the two linebackers and safety at The Star, the team’s new headquarters and practice facility.

“We spend a lot of our time here [at the practice facilities],” March-Lillard said. “You’re more with the guys here than you are with your own family, so it’s like a family environment. “Our church is here, so for us it was kind of like that’s why we got baptized here, because this is our church, this is where we have Bible study.”
