FCA Magazine's latest issue profiles 40 standout players who are also following Christ on and off the field. On the cover of this annual issue is Mason Rudolph, the record-setting senior quarterback at Oklahoma State University.

Editor Clay Meyer explains that in addition to a Q&A section with Rudolph, the Cowboys' quarterback wrote a devotional based on Isaiah 6:8: Then I heard the voice of the LORD saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

"He feels like that is his life verse," Meyer tells OneNewsNow, "so he talks about five specific ways he's incorporated that verse into his life and football career."

FCA logoMeyer believes Rudolph's devotional can have great impact because "a student athlete might look up to Mason Rudolph but not go to church and will pay attention to what he has to say," Meyer shares. "They'll read his words and be impacted by it.

"That is just part of the mission of what we do at FCA Magazine, and it allows us to share God's Word in places and in ways that a regular church may not be able to."

Rudolph shares with FCA Magazine that the testimony and witness of Tim Tebow greatly impacted his own perception of what it takes to be an effective leader.
