Russell Wilson Thanks God Despite His Team’s Super Bowl Loss

Wilson’s faith is inspirational in itself and truly unwavering. I watched this man lead his teammates and the opposing team in prayer on the sidelines – it was a moving and touching sight. All things are possible through God and Russell Wilson knows this and honors the Lord at every turn. He will keep fighting and playing as a testament to his faith. He is so very right when he says, “Every setback has a major comeback.” Just ask Jesus.

From Western Journalism:

Despite a tough loss, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was not hesitant to thank God “for the opportunity” to play in the big game.

Wilson tweeted the following Sunday after the Seahawks’ heartbreaking 28-24 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX:

He reinforced his initial tweet with a couple more a few hours later:

The Seahawks were part of the most watched Super Bowl in history and it was a close game. The ending was heartbreaking for them, but they will be back. It was the opportunity of a lifetime and a thrill for all of them. In God, Wilson will find more and more strength. He knows what he fights for and honors the guiding light of his life. I think of Russell Wilson as an absolute hero and a mentor for our young people. By proclaiming his Christian faith he touches and saves countless lives – Wilson spreads the gospel through football. He’s a leader on and off the field.
