1. Prince Amukamara, Chicago Bears cornerback

Amukamara formerly played for the New York Giants and won a Super Bowl ring with the team in 2011. After the victory he was seen pointing to heaven in praise. He is also unashamed to share how his faith and relationship with Jesus Christ has transformed his life: “I am a virgin, I’m not ashamed to say that,” Amukamara said. “I grew up Catholic, so it just started out as one of those things. I’d think, ‘If I do this, maybe I can get to heaven,’ so I had no drinks, no sex, all the big things. As I grew up, I realized that’s not what it’s about. It’s not about ‘Don’t do this or don’t do that… It’s about having a relationship with Jesus.”
