I had a great time speaking at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes banquet in Branson Missouri. We stayed at a beautiful resort the Chateau Lake Resort an absolute first class hotel. The banquet was first class in every way. I can’t thank Brian Mitchell who is the executive director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in south central Missouri for his incredible hospitality. Brian has a terrific sense of passion and pride in teaching people how to develop values that are vital to making it in the greatest game of all, the Game Of Life.

I enjoyed being their keynote speaker and the crowd was a very delight to address. Gathered were many outstanding student athletes who are more then just athletic, but really have a firm foundation with terrific moral views and values.

It was a night my wife and I will always treasure, as it was filled with many golden memories.

Draymond Green’s all-around game was vital for the Warriors.

This is the time of season where the stars come through.
