be heavy on

Allegro molto

Several years earlier, as he was approaching the end of his first year as speaker, Mr. Gingrich gave a speech to a conference of evangelical pastors at Liberty University in Virginia, founded by the late evangelist Jerry Falwell. The address was heavy on God and morality and the need to re-establish a spiritual base in the United States, a recurring Gingrich refrain.

Does 'was heavy on God' mean 'dealt with God a lot'?

Thank you

    Can I say "The football team is heavy on young players, light on veterans ", which means the team is filled with young players and only has few veterans?
