THIS IS EPISODE 417 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Jason Hanson played 21 seasons in the NFL, all with the Detroit Lions from 1992-2012. He was selected in the second round of the 1992 NFL Draft by Detroit (56th overall) out of Washington State and went on to become one of the greatest kickers in NFL history.
He was a two-time Pro Bowl selection and currently ranks fourth on the NFL’s all-time points scored career list with 2,150. He holds multiple NFL records, including most field goals of 40 or more yards, most consecutive field goals of 40 or more yards, and most career games with one NFL team (327).
Hanson was inducted into the Detroit Lions Ring of Honor at Ford Field during the 2013 season, following his retirement from the NFL in April 2013.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Hanson about the memory of his first NFL kick, how his faith in Christ was shaped, the hope and encouragement he has for Lions fans, bringing his faith to the NFL, and the spiritual mentors that helped shape him as a player and a man.
