Indianapolis Colts coaching great and devout Christian Tony Dungy recalled the Bible verse his mother taught him so many years ago during his acceptance speech at Saturday’s Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Dungy – who won over 139 regular season games as an NFL head coach, led the 2006 Colts to a Super Bowl victory and won a Super Bowl ring as a player with the 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers – received football’s greatest honor this past weekend in Canton, Ohio, as he, along with Green Bay Packers quarterback great Brett Favre, highlighted the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2016.

Recalling his playing days, which only lasted three seasons, Dungy began his acceptance speech by saying that it’s “kind of a miracle” that he is now being enshrined as a hall of famer.

Dungy said when he heard the news in February that he would be enshrined in the same hall as coaching greats like Vince Lombardi, Don Shula and John Madden, his first thoughts were about how God really placed him in that position.
