Brock Purdy, once the last pick in the NFL Draft, has risen to become a potential MVP and the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.

His faith has been a crucial part of his success, drawing strength from Psalm 23 and 2 Corinthians 12:9. Despite intense media attention and pressure, he remains grounded and attributes his success to his faith.

“For me, this year, it’s been Psalm 23,” Purdy said when questioned about what Scripture he has been reading.

“‘The Lord is my Shepherd, I have what I need. He lets me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters.’ Then it goes on,” Purdy said.

“But for me, you know, playing this game, playing this sport, there’s a lot that goes into it,” he said. “It’s easy to get wrapped up in wanting to be loved, obviously by your teammates and everybody, but also the world.

“For me, in that passage, it’s saying, ‘I already have what I need from the Good Shepherd and Jesus.’”

Psalm 23 is “what I start off with actually every single day,” he said.

“I just read off Psalm 23 to myself before I start off with some solitude and then go about my day.”

Purdy’s journey from being overlooked to becoming a standout player is seen as almost miraculous, and he remains focused on his faith and the support of his family and friends.

“I’ve never tried to hold on to the football life tightly,” Purdy said. “I’ve held it pretty loosely. And see what God has in store. I’ve stayed faithful to him and he’s taken me to places I could never have imagined.”

“You look at the 49ers logo and you think of success in Super Bowls because of those guys,” Purdy said. “That’s something I have in the back of my mind. There’s a standard here.”

“With the media and all the stuff going around on the outside, you get a lot more attention than you ever had in your life,” Purdy said. “But for me, it’s turn off the social media, turn off all the other outside stuff. I’ve got my family and friends that text me just like normal. And I’ve got really good teammates around me. I keep it simple until it’s time to play football.”
