THIS IS EPISODE 437 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Jonathan Stewart played 11 seasons in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants. He was selected in the first round (13th overall) by the Panthers in the 2008 NFL Draft.
In college, Stewart was a two-time first-team All-American running back in 2006 and 2007 with the University of Oregon, and he won the 2007 Sun Bowl MVP after rushing for a career-high 253 yards in the game.
In the NFL, Stewart became the Panthers’ all-time leading rusher after piling up 7,318 yards and 51 touchdowns (in addition to 1,295 yards and seven TDs receiving) in 10 seasons. He made the Pro Bowl in January 2016.
After one injury-riddled season in New York with the Giants, Stewart announced his retirement in April 2019.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Stewart about his transition to retirement, living out his faith as an NFL player, the experience of playing in the Super Bowl, and why he calls himself a “convicted competitor.”
Stop right now and ask God to show you how to walk in His perfect will. Instead of counting yourself out, count God in and determine to do exactly as He instructs.
