Over 325 gathered to hear stories from local coaches about how FCA had impacted their lives and the lives of the student athletes on their campus. As a bonus Dabo Swinney (Clemson Head Football Coach) spoke of his journey to coaching, to Clemson, and most of all to his faith in God. Here are a few of the highlights.
1. God never says OOPS!
2. When adversity comes into our lives it either defines us, destroys us, or God uses it to develop us. Make the right choice.
3. We have to be “Over Believers” and not just “Over Achievers”
4. We have to be ready for battle every day, put on the Armor of God.
5. We have to stay away from Things or People that are keeping us from being who God wants us to be.
In addition there was a pre-event with 30 local coaches where Dabo spoke encouragement to them to live out their faith in every area of life including their coaching.
