‘Jesus… You Get All The Glory’: Russell Wilson Reaches 100 Career Wins

By Movieguide® Staff

Since the Seattle Seahawks drafted QB Russell Wilson in 2012, the team has avoided a losing record.

However, after a rocky start to the NFL season this year, Wilson and the Seahawks came away with a win against the San Francisco 49ers to bring their overall record to 2-2.

Aside from evading a 1-3 losing record, the win also marked a record-breaking statistic for Wilson. The pro-bowler became the fastest NFL QB to reach 100 career wins.

The outspoken Christian took to Twitter after the game and gave credit to Jesus.

“JESUS… YOU get ALL the Glory!!! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾,” Russell tweeted.

“That’s why I play the game, is to win. Just to be in great company with some amazing players in the history of this game … it’s pretty special,” he added in the post-game press conference.

“I think back to my Dad – when he used to wake me up in the morning – and before, I didn’t really want to wake up that early. He used to try to wake me up at 5:15, 5:30 in the morning and he’d knock on my door and say ‘Son, you want to be great?’ every day,” Wilson recalled. “I started answering the call, you know. I tried to be up earlier than him.”

Movieguide® previously reported on how Wilson uses his platform to point people to Christ:

The eight-time Pro-Bowler encouraged his millions of followers to find peace in God via his social media accounts.

“Y’all ever go to bed, and you’re tossing and turning and can’t sleep? Your minds running … all these different things whether it’s big or small, whatever it may be, you can’t find that peace and a lot of times we’re trying to find the peace of me, the peace of you, the peace of us,” Wilson, 32, said.

He added: “What the Scripture says in Philippians 4:7, is the peace of God – the peace of God – that transcends all understanding. That’s the kind of peace that I want to have – the peace of God. I challenge us to try to search for that. And a lot of times what happens is that we run our own thoughts, our own ideas – we’re constantly thinking about what we want to do, how we want to fix it, how we want to handle this, and we want to do that.”

Wilson ended on a question, urging his followers to think about Christ.

“How about God, how about Jesus? What would He do? I think the biggest thing that we have to connect to is the promise of God,” Wilson said. “Actually, reading the Scripture and understanding what He wants for us and what He wants for me. I know for me personally, that’s what I’ve been working on. Not trying to find my own peace. I want the peace of God.”
