He is a quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts. Drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 1998, he was traded to the Seattle Seahawks in 2001. During his time there, he led the Seahawks to six playoff appearances and a Super Bowl appearance.

After ten seasons with the Seahawks, he joined the Tennessee Titans for a brief period in 2011. After being released, he signed a contract with the Indianapolis Colts in 2013. He was selected to three Pro Bowls in 2003, 2005, and 2007 and to the All-Pro in 2005.

When he was in the first grade, his parents came to Christ. He said, “I grew up in a great church with parents who were great role models.” He personally gave his life to Christ at Vacation Bible School in Boston at the age of 11. While at Boston College, he got involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He credits God with the success he has experienced in football and seeks to glorify Him in all that He does. He said, “God doesn’t need my ability. He just needs my availability. That’s my approach to life.” He and his wife and children frequently team up with Compassion International because they want to see more children reach their full potential.

His name is Matt Hasselbeck.
