Faith on the Field – Christians in Super Bowl XLIX

imgresOK all you Seahawks and Patriots fans.  Your day has almost arrived.  Who will win this year’s Super Bowl?  Are you rooting for the Legion of Boom or the Brady Bunch?  Or are you one of the many whose team is eliminated are are therefore more interested in the Super Bowl Commercials and the food at your party?  At this pointI am not really a strong supporter of either team, but I do love to share the stories of Christian Athletes and so if you ask me who I am cheering for on Sunday, I have players that I am cheering on on both sides of the field:

Nate-Solder-TD

Solder catches a surprise TD pass against the Colts in the AFC Championship game.

 

From the New England Patriots:

Nate Solder –  Offensive Lineman who caught his first NFL TD pass against the Colts in the AFC Championship game

Chris Jones – Defensive Tackle

Chandler Jones – Defensive End whose brother Arthur won a Super Bowl ring a couple years back with the Ravens and now plays for the Colts team that the Patriots beat to go to the Super Bowl.

Duron Harmon – Defensive Back

NFC Championship Football

Russell Wilson rushes for a TD in Seattle’s amazing comeback win against the Packers

and Matthew Slater – Special Teams ace whose story was among those I highlighted the last time the Patriots went to the Super Bowl

From the Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson – Quarterback

Clint Gresham – Long Snapper who was featured in last years CBN Superbowl video along with Russell Wilson, Russell Okung and others

Russell Okung – Offensive Lineman

These players are the ones featured in this video from CBN at the Super Bowl.

Here are some others that I have blogged about that will be playing in the game:

O’Brien Schofield – Seahawks Defensive Lineman/Linebacker

Devin McCourty – Patriots Defensive back

Enjoy the Game everyone!

  1. Every year, for the 1/2 time devotion, no we don’t watch the show, we try to find information and try to highlight the Christian players to share with our youthgroup.
    Thanks so much for gathering and posting this. I’m glad I found this. God Bless
