best week of the year
FCA camp is always the best week out of the year for me personally. There is nothing like it. It is a place for me not to only grow as an athlete, something that is extremely important to me as a football player (even as a huddle leader I still grow as a collegiate football player), but more importantly I get to grow as a Christian man, the one thing that is more important to me than anything else. I am able to use my faith that I have in Jesus Christ with younger high school athletes and am able to help teach them you don't have to "leave Jesus behind" when you go out and play your sport. Instead, I am able to help teach/show them that you are a Christian first, athlete second, and that Jesus is still out on the field with you when you are playing. This is what I learned as a camper, that you can be a light and example for your teammates on and off the field, and that playing a sport gives you another opportunity to be a witness of Jesus Christ to not only your teammates, but to your opponents and even the fans in the stands. This is what FCA camp has taught me, it has changed my life, and now I am able to be used by God to try and do the same for younger student athletes who attend as campers.
