Chisholm's Kelby Carlson - FCA Spotlight Presented By Jack's Outdoor Power Equipment
By Jay Hoberecht
In 1954, God gave Oklahoma basketball coach Don McClanen a vision: coaches and athletes impacting lives for Christ. This stirring led to a movement and the founding of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Now, 65 years later, FCA is fulfilling the vision of influence for Christ.
Oklahoma FCA had their 46th All-State Honors Banquet virtually on Sunday, May 3rd honoring four student athletes from northwest Oklahoma. FCA State Director John O’Dell was impressed with the four young people that were chosen to represent northwest Oklahoma.
