FCA Wrestling Board Member (since 2009; helped start FCA Wrestling)

Executive Director and Head Wrestling Coach of the Pennsylvania RTC

WHY FCA WRESTLING?

“I was drawn to be on the FCA Wrestling Leadership Board because I believed the FCA organization should and would have an eternal impact on the sport of wrestling. I had heard of FCA since I was in high school back in Amarillo, Texas, and had spoken at some FCA events. However, in 2009, there had yet to be a focus by FCA specifically on the sport of wrestling, and that needed to change. So, in 2009, I joined the FCA Wrestling Leadership Board to help establish a vision, mission, and action plan for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the sport of wrestling. Since joining the board, it has been a tremendous honor to see how FCA Wrestling has influenced a myriad of coaches for Christ, has been a bright light to Olympians, has shared resources of truth all around the globe, and has planned many events where wrestlers received Jesus as their Lord and Savior. I always say, ‘If you love Jesus and sport of wrestling, there is no better organization to support than FCA Wrestling.’ ”
