Summer 2024

Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph says he wants to be a witness for Christ

Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph has had quite the 2017 season. The 22 year-old senior has thrown for 4,553 passing yards (1st in FBS), 35 passing touchdowns (T-4th in FBS), 10 rushing touchdowns and just 9 interceptions in helping the Cowboys to a 9-3 record.

Rudolph is in his 3rd year starting for Oklahoma State and has improved his passing yards and touchdowns each season. The 6’5 230 pound signal caller from Rock Hill, South Carolina will look toward a professional future where he will likely be one of the top quarterbacks taken in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Last week, Rudolph was awarded the 2017 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award winner given annually to the nation’s outstanding senior or fourth-year quarterback in college football.

Rudolph recently was on the cover of FCA Magazine and shared his desire to not just be a great football player, but to also be a great ambassador for Jesus Christ.

“I passionately pursue Christ because I want to be a witness for Him and use this platform to impact our community.”

Even in the midst of the expectations and pressure of a football season, Mason says his faith in Christ sustains him.

“Christ is at the center of it,” Rudolph said. “It’s Christ who will always be there for you; He’s your foundation. So just getting in the word and leaning on a few of my life verses throughout the week, as well as constant communication with my parents and grandparents – that’s my secret to success.”

Mason Rudolph will play one last game as a college football player with Oklahoma State on Thursday December 28 at the Camping World Bowl in Orlando, Florida against Virginia Tech.
