FCA Holds First Father/Son Camp

FARMVILLE — The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) held its first Father/Son Football Camp on Saturday, June 20, and had 35 participants.

The faith-based camp was full of small challenges and taught participants skills they could use in every position in football.

Campers also were taught by four college football players. Virginia Tech football players Andrew Motuapuaka (current linebacker) and Joshua Stanford (former wide receiver) helped with the event. Former North Carolina State running back Kennie Apilli and former Randolph-Macon wide receiver Luke Sellers also helped by training participants.

Former Washington & Lee offensive lineman Matt Allen helped organize the event, along with former Hampden-Sydney College and Longwood University assistant basketball coach Mario Huffman. Huffman was previously a linebacker for Averett University.

“Our mission is to impact the world through Jesus Christ through the influences of coaches and athletes, and I believe the camp did that. We are happy with the overall turnout,” Huffman said.
