Summer is coming...
Dozens of phone calls, text messages and emails, and 50+ Donuts.
That's a small price to pay to see what we're seeing in this picture.
Red Bank Regional High School FCA hosted Raritan High School football coach Anthony Petruzzi and his huddle for a morning session aimed at helping Raritan's student-athletes improve their numbers and reach players from sports other than Football. 5 tables full of students talking and brainstorming some really great ideas. Really, I'm not just saying that. You could see the wheels turning for Coach Petruzzi as well - it's inspiring to see 40+ kids at RBR at 7:00 in the morning. Swim and Volleyball coach Jennamarie DeVito offered some great ideas and encouragement as well. It's days like this that make my job the best job on the planet.
School is wrapping up for the year and the last few months I've had the privilege of serving in over a dozen schools. Next school year will be here faster than we know it (sorry kids summer is really only two months long) and for the first time in my life I am excited by that fact. My goal of adding new huddles in our middle schools and improving our high school presence will be taking shape this summer. If you are a coach in a middle school or high school in Monmouth County, or you know one that would like to get involved with FCA - GET ME IN TOUCH WITH THEM. Same for students. I am looking for kids who want to change their campuses with the ministry of FCA. We'll train you, we'll give you everything you need (for this purpose I consider donuts a need).
Camps are coming on strong. Kutztown Multi-Sport camp is only two weeks away and it promises to be an amazing year. Do you have a student-athlete who is between 13 and 18 years old? Sign them up. They'll come back to you a better athlete and, more importantly, they'll know more about God.
