Brock Purdy, the San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback, has faced doubt despite his record-breaking performance.

He led the team to a comeback victory in the NFC championship game and will start in the Super Bowl.

Purdy attributes his success to his faith, emphasizing the importance of staying grounded and finding identity in his beliefs rather than in football or worldly pursuits.

“No one was rah-rah,” Purdy said following the win. “No one was freaking out. It’s football. There’s a lot of experienced guys on this team, veteran guys who have been in crazy situations. We were just like, ‘We have to do our job.’”

“Honestly, I think it’s just a testament to God and where He’s taken me in life,” Purdy said.

“I’ve never been the biggest, the fastest, the strongest, or any of that. I feel like I’ve always had to sort of fight for what I get and work for what I get. But God’s always given me an opportunity, whether that was in high school, college and then obviously in the NFL. Getting drafted last, people overlook you and all that kind of stuff, and then all you need is an opportunity and watch and see what He does. I put my faith and trust in Him and He’s gotten me where I’m at,” he said.

“So when I’m down 17 at half, honestly, I’m just thinking, ‘All right God, You’ve taken me here, and win or lose I’m going to glorify You.’ That’s my peace, that’s the joy, that’s the steadfastness — that’s where I get it from. And that’s the honest truth. So I leaned into that and sure enough, we were able to come back.”

“The minute you have fame, and if you’re trying to chase status and money and all this stuff, you’ll lose your life — rather than denying yourself, picking up your cross, keeping your eyes on Jesus and His promises,” Purdy said. “Through that, that’s life, and that’s a life worth living.”

“My identity can’t be in football, it can’t be in the things of this world,” he said. “It’s got to be in Him.”
