Indianapolis Colts tight end Trey Burton proudly displays the convergence of faith, family, and football.
Though his fans may know him best as the player who threw the “Philly Special” touchdown pass in Super Bowl LII, Burton’s athletic accolades are not what’s most important to him.
God is at the center of his life, and the tight end is proud to show it. In fact, Burton’s been known to water baptize teammates back when he played for the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2016, a video was released of Eagles players Mychal Kendricks, Jordan Hicks, Kamu Grugier-Hill, David Watford, and Paul Turner all publicly professing their faith as they got baptized in the team’s practice facility recovery pool. Trey Burton and chaplain Ted Winsley conducted the baptisms, as approximately 15 teammates witnessed the miraculous event.
Most recently, Burton got in a pool of water outside of his Tampa church to baptize his son Jaxon. The proud papa blessed and baptized his 6-year-old, and afterwards took to Twitter and Instagram saying, “My little man is FOREVER CHANGED!”
“I’m so proud of Jax for his boldness and thankful for the spirit he has been given,” Burton continued. “Praying he will keep his eyes fixed on Jesus no matter what is going on in the world.”
