Super Bowl LII will go down in history as one of the most exciting in history, and part of what made it so incredible is the Eagles, the underdogs, won! The team has been catching fire off the field as well, as many of them have been living for Jesus in the locker room and beyond.
Nick Foles, who led the Eagles to victory, is already excited for what he plans on doing once he retires from the NFL: become a youth pastor!
He shared with CBN news:
“I want to be a pastor in a high school,” Foles said on Thursday before the Super Bowl. “It’s on my heart. I took a leap of faith last year and signed up to take classes at seminary. I wanted to continue to learn and challenge my faith. It’s a challenge because you are writing papers that are biblically correct. You want to impact people’s hearts.”
“When I speak to (students), that’s such a time of young men and young women’s lives that there’s a lot of things that are thrown at them. So much temptation in this world, so much going on with social media and the internet that you want to talk to them and address it and share all the weaknesses I have because I’ve fallen many times,” Foles said. “It’s something I want to do. I can’t play football forever. I’ve been blessed with an amazing platform and it’s just a door God has opened, but I still have a lot of school left and a long journey.”
Until he can start his dream job, he can still inspire millions on Sundays in the fall and winter with his humble leadership and God-given talent!
