San Francisco 49ers Brock Purdy Takes His Faith in Christ to the Super Bowl

“I think he does such an incredible job of managing the fame and expectations, being the same guy every day and prioritizing his studying,” 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk said.

In addition to studying playbooks, Purdy also keeps up with studying the Bible. He said that this year he went back to Psalm 23 again and again this season and post-season. He is also known to often pray during games.

Purdy’s seat as starting QB at this weekend’s upcoming Super Bowl certainly speaks to the fact that he is a game winner. And whether he’s a game manager or not, he’s made it clear that it is Christ who is managing his life and career.

“I was reminded what Jesus told us thousands of years ago,” Purdy said. “If you try to chase fame, status, money, you’ll lose your life. Keeping your eyes on Jesus and his promises … that’s a life worth living.”

And how does he handle the fame and adulation that comes with being a winning professional quarterback on his way to the biggest stage in the game? He acknowledges that that aspect of his life comes with some unique challenges.

“Playing this game, playing this sport, there’s a lot that goes into it,” he said. “It’s easy to get wrapped up in wanting to be loved, obviously by your teammates and everybody, but also the world. “For me, in that passage [Psalm 23], it’s saying, I already have what I need from the good Shepherd and Jesus.”

Knowing who he is and whose he is is the thing that helps Brock Purdy stay grounded as he moves forward in his career.

“The bottom line for me is, my identity is in Jesus,”  he told podcaster Jason Romano last. year.

Best of luck and prayers for a safe game to Brock Purdy, his teammates and their opponents this weekend at Super Bowl LVIII!
