Oregon QB Bo Nix Wants to Point Others ‘Towards the Lord’ 

By Movieguide® Contributor

University of Oregon quarterback Bo Nix opened up about his faith journey and why he boldly shares his faith.

“When I was seven, we lived in Atlanta. I asked Jesus into my heart, and…from…then on, it’s been a relatively steady relationship,” Nix told The 700 Club.

It hasn’t been easy, though. He shared that being bold in his faith as a five-star recruit is a “daily challenge.”

“It was difficult to kind of be that person to stand out for it and…take a stand for it, but at the end of the day, I understood why I was doing it,” he explained. “It wasn’t really something I was doing for other people. It was really strong in myself, and I felt like that was the right thing to do.”

Nix led the Auburn Tigers in his freshman year but struggled with injuries during the next few seasons. With several years left of eligibility, Nix decided to pursue a fresh start somewhere else.

He eventually decided to play for Oregon and knew it was what God wanted for him.

“I never felt anything but peace about my decision, and I think He placed it on my heart because He didn’t put anything else in the way,” Nix said. “He didn’t make my decision difficult. He kind of just made all roads lead to Oregon.”

Since he started at Oregon, he has given the Ducks a shot to play for the National Championship.

However, Nix doesn’t just impact people on the field. He also shares his faith off the field.

“Ultimately, I believe in Matthew where it says you’re the light of the world, and I think that our main goal on Earth is to go and influence others and to point them towards the Lord,” Nix expressed.

He often shares Bible Verses on his social media. In one post, he wrote, “He determines the number of stars in the sky, and he calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. Psalm 147:4-5.”

In another post, Nix captioned a photo of him on the field, “Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10. Jesus, thank you for these moments.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Nix:

With the University of Oregon football’s dominant performance against Colorado University this past Saturday, the Ducks are now 4-0 to begin the 2023 season, and quarterback Bo Nix is thanking God for it.

When asked about his incredible start to the season, especially with the win over Colorado, Nix gave God the glory.

“That’s another God moment,” he said in a post-game press conference. “He just ordains our steps. He puts us in situations all the time to where life comes full circle.”
