Trey Lance is a standout basketball and football player at Marshall High School, already drawing interest from colleges.
But Trey wants you to know something.
"Trying to be a high school athlete and trying to follow Christ: I don't think people realize how hard it is," Trey says. "When I accepted Christ at FCA Camp, the Bible became real to me. I understood how to apply verses to my life and to other people and how to apply them to sports."
Trey played in one of the most memorable high school basketball ever. Clips of key shots in that game against Waseca High School went viral, even showing up all over ESPN.
Though he went 5-for-14, Trey hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer to force the first of four overtimes.
He persevered through initial adversity in that game, and he ultimately experienced disappointment, as Waseca eventually won the sectional championship, largely spurred by a 70-footer!
In his walk, though, Trey is thankful for peers who join him in Huddles and for FCA staffers like Robin Knudson supporting him.
"I don't have the strength alone to battle this," Trey says. "But through Christ, FCA and my friends and family, I can do it."
Players on both teams, however, did get some special perks.
