At Friday night’s game versus the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, the 57-year-old was presented with the “Culture Award,” which exemplifies effort, attitude and toughness.

“All glory goes to our Lord Jesus,” Lansing said.

The Lakewood native said he wants to be an inspiration to students.

“We need to set an example for younger people. It’s OK to experience adversity and hardship, that’s OK. But what your attitude is and how you respond to it, that’s what matters. I’m just doing my best, that’s all I’m trying to do.”

Colorado Christian lost time UCCS, 72-51.
