“I love FCA because I see the way God can use athletes, coaches, and sports to connect with people and through that connection and platform, lives are changed eternally. I have seen coaches and athletes both alter the negative direction their lives were going and become a blessing to their families and even the community. It is a wonderful way to serve and be served. I am blessed by having been involved through most of my life!”
