Many players say their faith has helped through tough times, but Wilson says, “I don’t have highs and lows because I play for Him.” Wilson gives God the credit for his talent. “I’m just grateful that God has given me the opportunity to play the great game of football. I try to live humbly…without Him, I wouldn’t be where I am today,” says Wilson.

“God has put me on that field for a reason, in front of 80,000 people… I’m a constant work in progress—we all are. That’s the amazing thing about Jesus—He takes you for who you are, said Wilson.
