Christian athlete Ryan Succop recently won this season’s Super Bowl after the Lord showed him a rainbow that led him to Tampa Bay.
Ryan Succop has been a professional football player since he joined the National Football League (NFL) in 2009. Kansas City Chief picked him as the final pick of the 2009 NFL Draft. After four years playing with the Chiefs, he played with the Tennessee Titans for another five years before he encountered an injury in 2019.
The injury left him without a job throughout most of 2020 in the middle of the pandemic.
“Last year was a really difficult year for me, coming off of an injury, trying to play and maybe wasn’t where I needed to be, and really struggled when I played,” he told Sports Spectrum in an interview last week. “It was tough, it was frustrating, there was definitely some adversity. When you go through something like that, I think it’s human nature where you start to kind of doubt yourself.”
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In August of 2020, Ryan met with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Despite the worries of being away with his family, he trusted the Lord for the decision he would be making.
“This is wild, but literally the night before that workout (in Tampa), I had been praying about this like, ‘Lord, if You want this for me and my family, I just trust You with it and I’ll just trust You to take care of it. And You’ll show me if You want us to be here or not,” he said.
God answered his prayer in a marvelous way! God showed him a rainbow the evening of that same day. The rainbow clearly led him to Tampa Bay.
“There’s a rainbow that goes directly over, and it looks like it goes directly into Raymond James Stadium. … It was unavoidable, like I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, the Lord is showing me that He wants me to be here.’”
Today, together with Ryan Succop, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl LV against Kansas City Chiefs.
