(ANGOLA) - Former Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday told nearly 400 graduating seniors at Trine University on Saturday morning that "you work to live, you don't live to work." Saturday delivered the Commencement address and told the graduates there were four basic things they should follow that were keys for success for him and the Colts. They were setting effective goals, teamwork, survive storms and have wisdom with ambition. He urged graduates to know their role in life and to stay balanced. Saturday talked about his days with the Colts which included a Super Bowl championship. As for playing with quarterback Peyton Manning, he said some people thought they would fight like an old married couple. When Manning told a reporter he was the husband, Saturday countered by saying he was the wife because he was always right. Saturday and Grammy Award winning singer Lee Greenwood were given honorary degrees by the university. Greenwood performed the first concert in the newly dedicated T. Furth Center for Performing Arts on Friday night. He stayed for the commencement and sang the national anthem along with his signature song, "God Bless the U.S.A.".
