“Patrick,” an Atheist College Football Player

Our guest is a college football player from one of the top Division 1 programs in the country. He’s not just a guy on the bench; he himself is one of the top players in the country for his position.

At his request, we’re maintaining his anonymity because he deserves to be recognized for his talent and not his atheism, and we don’t want to ruin that for him. Rest assured, though, we know his real name. We’ve verified that he is who he says he is. We wanted to talk to him about faith, football, and his future.

For the sake of this interview, we’re going to call him “Patrick.”

We spoke with Patrick about how he became an atheist, what it’s like being an atheist on a mostly religious team, and what those of us on the outside don’t know about college football.
