FCA logoThe Fellowship of Christian Athletes offers a special insight for college football fans as the bowl season prepares to kick off.

The first bowl games are December 19, culminating with the playoff semifinals (December 31), several major bowl games on New Year's Day, and the championship game on January 11. The latest issue of FCA Magazine will be very helpful for fans as the ministry rolls out its annual college football edition highlighting the faith of more than 60 players.

"We see this is a great opportunity and great chance as the spotlight is shown on each one of these teams and games over the next several weeks," says magazine editor Clay Mayer.

"[It allows us to] highlight a different aspect of these guys playing – that they're not just out there playing football, but they're using the platform that God has given them as Division I college football players to share their faith."

Meyer says when given the opportunity, the players enjoy talking about their relationship with Christ.

"They're asked questions all the time about X's and O's and game plans and all that," the journalist shares. "So when they get a chance to share their faith you can really hear it – whether it's over the phone or just in their responses that they're excited to tell people about their faith from the platform that God's given them."

The player profiles are available online, grouped according to conference. The cover profile spotlights Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram, whose #12 Rebels take on #16 Oklahoma State University January 1 in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
