SS PODCAST: Chargers kicker Dustin Hopkins on trusting God in an unpredictable career

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING DUSTIN HOPKINS

Dustin Hopkins is a kicker with the Los Angeles Chargers. He was selected in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills, following a standout career in college at Florida State, where he set a Division I record in 2012 for career points by a kicker (442) and was named an All-American.

In the NFL, Hopkins played in 2013 with Buffalo, but was released after an injury. He was signed to the Saints practice squad, but ultimately found a home in Washington in 2015, and spent six seasons with the team until his surprise release in 2021. After being picked up by the Chargers, Hopkins had a great finish to last season and signed a three-year contract extension to remain in Los Angeles.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Hopkins about his faith in Jesus, getting released by Washington in 2021, trusting in God’s plan, lessons from his former coach Bobby Bowden, and the importance of praying in all aspects of his life.
