For years, Jacob Tamme has made it clear that he plays for more than just the accolades that come along with a professional football career. Tamme is playing to give God glory.

In a 2013 interview with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the tight end spoke about how he brings Jesus into his game.

"Praying that I would play in the fullness of His Spirit and with the goal of bringing Him glory," Tamme told FCA in an interview where he also shared his favorite scripture. "Romans 8:28. It is an incredible promise and healthy to refer to and meditate on during times when we don't feel like things are going our way."
