How did you come to know Christ?

I first accepted Christ when I was young. However, I didn’t really meet Jesus until midway through my playing career at NAU. They say that God lives at the end of your rope, and It was there that I saw Jesus for the first time. Christ has my heart and hasn’t allowed me to be the same ever since. 

Why do you work for FCA?

FCA has the unique opportunity to focus the great commission on the hearts of coaches and athletes. Through FCA I now get to be apart of two of my favorite things, sports and Jesus, and I get to do it full time. I’m living the dream. 

What’s your vision for FCA?

To point athletes and coaches to Jesus Christ. Beyond that are God sized visions of bringing FCA to every locker room and pregame routine. 

Coach who impacted you the most and why?

Richard Taylor - My high school football coach had the biggest influence on my life. I knew he cared about my teammates and I outside of football and it challenged me to perform my best on and off the field. He also had a laid back way about him when he approached the game, which was great for a guy like me who took the game too seriously from time to time.
