He is only the 20th player in NRL History to reach the big 300 and after debuting in 2002, the 33 year old is still going strong in 2014 and is expected to hang up the boots at the end of 2015.
Kite puts his perseverance in the NRL down to his faith in God that helped provide a 'moral compass' growing up. Previous to this he admits that he was a troublemaker away from the game and having a relationship with God provided an even keel.
He could have easily gone down the wide road that is so easy to take, but it is the straight and narrow that kept him on the right path.
Once Kite was heading in the right direction, his success in NRL came soon after, playing in four Grand Finals to win two Premierships, representing NSW at State of Origin as well as playing for Australia at Test level.
He is also in a small group of players to win the Clive Churchill Medal as man of the match in a Grand Final after doing so in Manly's win in 2008.
Kite's career can be best linked to Matthew 7 verses 13-14
"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it."
There are numerous cases of NRL players who have gone down the wide road, and it has led them to throw away their careers, Brent Kite could of easily been another name on the list but after turning to God and putting his faith in him, Brent has turned his life around to be a gentle giant and all round professional in rugby league whilst also a Christian family man off it.
