    New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara isn’t your average NFL player. Not only does he say some have dubbed him “the black Tim Tebow,” he’s also an unashamed Christian who prides himself on avoiding alcohol, being chaste and living a life devoid of the antics and pleasantries that are regularly enjoyed by other professional jocks.

    Amukamara made all that clear in a recent interview with Muscle & Fitness Magazine.

    How clear? Consider how candid Amukamara was when asked by the outlet if he’s a virgin. Yes, he said, and “I’m not ashamed to say that.”

    Amukamara is equally up front about alcohol, claiming he has never had a drink.

    “I still haven’t had a drink. I told my fiance that I’ll probably take my first drink at my bachelor party,” he said, going on to explain his reason for abstaining.

    “I grew up Catholic, so it just started out as one of those things,” he added. “I’d think, ‘If I do this, maybe I can get to heaven’ so I said no drinks, no sex, all the big things.”

    Later on in life, though, Amukamara said that he decided that having a relationship with Jesus was paramount and that being faithful shouldn’t be restricted to do’s and don’ts. As far as alcohol goes, he simply hasn’t seen the benefit and, has, thus, declined to partake.

    Still, he admits that he met his fiance, Pilar Davis, in a nightclub in New York City, but he wasn’t there for the drinks — he likes to dance.
