By WVUA 23 Reporter Allison Hicks
University of Alabama head athletic trainer Jeff Allen was the keynote speaker at the second annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet for the West Alabama chapter.
The event was held Thursday at the Tuscaloosa River Market where both high school and college athletes and coaches were in attendance, along with the families involved in FCA.
FCA’s overall mission is to lead athletes and coaches in their spiritual lives.
Allen shared how his faith helped him as an athlete and what FCA has meant to him.
“FCA has been a part of my life since I was in high school,” he said.”It just meant the world to me to be connected with other believers, with other people who trusted Christ with their life.”
