Several hundred people packed the Cherry Hill meeting house of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to listen to Eagles coach Andy Reid. The subject last night was salvation rather than football. The West Coast offense never came up. Reid and his wife, Tammy, both of whom are Mormons, were invited to speak by Channel 10 sportscaster Vai Sikahema, who is a bishop in the church's south Jersey branch.
Reid spoke to the mesmerized gathering for more than 30 minutes. He told them of his conversion to the Mormon religion at Brigham Young, and the important role his religion plays in his life.
