Dabon SwinneyA student-athlete ministry is congratulating one of its supporters: Clemson's head football coach.

Dabo Swinney, head coach of the newly crowned national champions in college football, is being congratulated for his Christian witness on and off the field by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Swinney has a special relationship with the sports ministry, says FCA Magazine editor Clay Meyer, because the coach became a follower of Christ during his involvement with FCA as a young athlete.

Coach Swinney, says Meyer, is the "perfect example" of FCA's mission, and the influence of coaches and athletes sharing Christ.

As an influential football coach, Swinney is now touching lives for Christ, which Meyer explains is why FCA is focused on helping coaches.

"They are really the influencers," he says, "and they are really the people that are making an impact in young people's lives." 

Many of those athletes grow up to become coaches, he explains, and influence many others as the years pass by.
