Kansas City Chiefs’ place kicker Harrison Butker may not be a household name, but the sure-footed 24-year-old could end up being the deciding factor in a game that is expected to come down to the wire. He is second in NFL history in career field goal percentage with 89.7%.

In an interview with EWTN last year, Butker talked about how he was raised Catholic, but, like many teens, began to lose his faith in his high school years. In the interview, he explains how talking with a Catholic teammate at Georgia Tech led him back to the sacrament of Confession, where he experienced a powerful conversion of heart.

Coincidentally, another Catholic kicker, the Baltimore Ravens Justin Tucker,holds first place for highest field goal percentage with a 96.6% over his career. Tucker has also been open about his faith, and has made headlines here for singing “Ave Maria.”
