Faith and Football: Super Bowl LI athletes discuss their faith in the Lord [VIDEO]

GETTYArticle By Shawn Brown // CBN News // Faith & Football

Share On Sunday February 5, the Atlanta Falcons will make an attempt to capture their first Super Bowl championship. But in order to do that they have to get past Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, a team most either love or hate.

While winning is on on the players' minds, many say it is their faith that helps them stay focused on what matters most in their lives.

“Without my faith I would not be here man. I was not a guy who was highly recruited at all," said Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett in an interview with CBN. "It took a lot of self belief and a lot of self doubt that I had to get over to get the belief in myself to come out and do what I do. But I thank God every night for having me in this situation."

Atlanta running back Devonta Freeman anchors the Falcons run game. He says he wouldn’t be here either if it wasn’t for his faith. He happens to be from Liberty city, one of roughest areas in South Florida and feels so blessed to be able to play the game he loves on the biggest stage in football.

“Coming from where I come from, there’s so many ups and downs. You know, it’s hard to stay focused, but I’m a man of God. And I just believe in Him so much and that’s all I’ve got," he said.

Freeman continued, "He’s been with me my whole life. Even when things were looking real ugly for me, all I had to do was to keep praying on Him, and keep working hard and continue to be focused."

Patriots’ Defensive Back Devin McCourty says his faith has grown also. He gives credit to the camaraderie found in the locker room.  

“My faith has continued to grow between 2014 and now. And you know, I’m just at a different stage of my life.. married, just had my first child this of season. So, It’s just all God’s blessing,” he said.

McCourty added, “Being back on this stage again, it’s been a great opportunity. But I think, I owe it to a lot of different men we have in the locker room that hold me accountable, hold each other accountable, help each other grow in our faith daily.”
