Most know him as the star quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks.
Others may know him as a man who volunteers much of his time at the children's hospital, spending time cheering up kids battling cancer.
But, unless you follow 26-year-old Russell Wilson online, you may be unaware of exactly how much faith plays a role in his life.

Yes, like many others in the NFL, Wilson is known to say a prayer after each game — but his devotion to God extends far beyond that and spills into his public life.
The young quarterback, who will face off with the New England Patriots' Tom Brady in this year's Super Bowl, regularly talks openly about his faith online.
After tweeting about a recent visit to Seattle Children's, Wilson said, "I believe that God has put me on this earth to serve others."

For those that follow him on Twitter, it seems that every day the 26-year-old is posting about living for "His Glory."

In his final tweet before Sunday's NFC championship game, Wilson put his hope in Jesus.
"All my hope is in You Jesus!" he tweeted. "You are my anchor that is never shaken."

The first tweet immediately after his miraculous win credited God.
"Glory to God!" he wrote.
The star quarterback followed up the next day, sending out a flurry of tweets about his faith.
"There is none like You! No one else can touch my heart like You do! I can search for all of eternity, but there is none like You!" he said in one of the many tweets.

Yesterday wasn't just about the game.... It was So Much Bigger than just a game.— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) January 19, 2015
Such tweets, are normal on Wilson's account. The Washington State transplant chiefly tweets about his personal relationship with God, along with verses from the Bible.

In an interview with Pastor Mark Driscoll last year, Wilson expanded more on his faith, saying he was saved at the age of 14.
"I wouldn't be where I am today without Jesus," he explained at the time. "Jesus is my all, he's my everything."

"I'm not perfect by any means. I try to do things the right way, I try to live righteous, but I am a constant work in progress. And we all are. Nobody is perfect," Wilson continued. "And that's the amazing thing about Jesus – he takes you for who you are. And so for me, it's just giving him all the glory."
Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are set to square off with the New England Patriots in the 2015 Super Bowl on Feb. 1.
This story has been amended to reflect that Wilson was not born in Washington state, but moved there at a young age.
