FCA Bowl Game returning to Tyler
Tyler, TX (KETK) The Fellowship of Christian Athletes will bring the Heart of a Champion Bowl back to Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium June 15.
Harmony's Tim Russell will coach one of the All-Star teams. Here is what he told KETK's Danny Elzner.
"Ever since I've been involved with athletics, I've been associated with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. It has such a special place in my heart. I love what it represents. It's more that being a great athlete. It's being a great person. Sometimes when we see profession sports and professional athletes, we see them do some things that aren't so good. This is the good part of athletics. Having a group of Christian coaches come together and teach these young men, it touches me and I'm glad to be part of it."
Van's Jared Moffat will coach the other FCA team. Moffat also talked with Elzner.
"It's an honor to be part of this game and FCA. As a coach, you mentor kids and possibly change their lives. That's why we do what we do. We don't get a lot of vacation time any more. The summer is now what is used to be. We have to give up a little bit of our time. But we wouldn't do it if we didn't think it was important. I've got four boys. They'll be at every practice. They'll have as good a time as anybody there. We do volunteer it but it's a tremendous cause."
