Why is this important to you?

Integrity is important to me because it demands authenticity and honesty. Doing the right thing even when one is looking is hard, but it’s a true test of your character. 

Have you been involved with FCA or FCA Hockey in the past? What has been your experience with us? How has FCA Hockey impacted you?

I have participated in a few FCA events and camps and have connected with other players like myself around the country. The FCA staff is the best in the world, they truly care about you as a person and not just as a hockey player. FCA has helped me find like-minded brothers in Christ who are going through the same things as me. They have given me a Christian community inside of the hockey world. 

What is your favorite scripture verse? Why is this important to you?

My favorite verse is James 1:12 “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” 

It’s important to me because life is full of temptation and trial but through Jesus Christ I know I can win. It has been a verse I quote when I feel tempted or I am not performing to my best abilities. This verse tells me despite my success and failures, I know If I remain faithful to the Lord, He will say “Well done my good and faithful servant” someday. 

How did you hear about FCA Hockey?

My parents signed me up a year ago and it has been a great experience.
