With 2022 coming to a close, Sports Spectrum is highlighting our most-viewed stories of the year.
The 2021-22 season was one Cooper Kupp will never forget. The L.A. Rams star won the receiving triple crown by nearly rewriting the NFL record book with 145 catches, 1,947 yards and 16 receiving touchdowns in the regular season. His two touchdowns in the NFC championship game sent the Rams back to the Super Bowl, which happened to be in their home stadium. And there, he earned Super Bowl MVP honors with eight receptions for 92 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning TD catch with 1:25 remaining.
Throughout the season — and his entire career — Kupp pointed to Christ. During his media availability before Super Bowl LVI, Sports Spectrum asked Kupp if he could identify a lesson God taught him throughout the record-breaking year.
“I think the thing that He has taught me is that you will find that you are most fulfilled, you will find the most joy, when you are rooted in your purpose, and specifically rooted in His purpose for you,” he said.
