He was the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft to become quarterback for the St. Louis Rams. He played colleged football at the University of Oklahoma. In 2008, he became the second sophomore to win a Heisman trophy. He also holds the NCAA record for most touchdown passes by a freshman quarterback with 36. In his first season with the Rams, he won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award after setting the record for most completions by a rookie in NFL history. He enjoyed going to church with his parents and before long made the decision to give his life to Jesus Christ.
He says of his relationship with God, “I know that regardless of whether we win a game, lose a game, whether the whole state wants to kill me, whether there’s 8,000 fans booing me when I walk off that field, that there’s someone that, when I go home, I can talk to and have a conversation and a relationship with; and someone who will love me regardless of what I do. I really don’t see a reason why you wouldn’t want to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. I mean, not only was He the greatest human being to ever walk the earth, He’s everything that I want to strive for. He’s everything that anyone should ever want to strive for. You look at the things that He did. Everyone who’s on this earth was blessed because of Him. To come into this world and to deny Him the opportunity to have a relationship with you, is almost a slap in the face to Him.” His name is Sam Bradford.
