SS PODCAST: UNC chaplain Mitch Mason trusts God while battling nerve disorder

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Mitch Mason is the football chaplain for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Before arriving with UNC, he was the associate pastor of FreeWay Church in Clemson, S.C., and served as a mentor with Clemson football’s TigerHood program.

A former college football player, Mason was a four-year starter at cornerback for Missouri Western State University, where he became a two-time All-American. He later played professionally in the Arena Football League. In 2014, he was inducted into the MWSU Hall of Fame.

In February 2020, Mason noticed some discomfort in his back that wouldn’t go away. After seeking treatment over the course of a year, he was diagnosed with idiopathic small fiber neuropathy, a nerve disorder for which there is no known cure. He’s been dealing with migraines, seizures, difficulty walking and using his hands, occasional fainting and memory loss.

Today’s podcast features Mason’s powerful story of trusting in God during an incredibly difficult season of life, as he battles a nerve disorder with no known cure.
