Stanfill gives boost to FCA in Cairo

CAIRO —  A small group gathered in the Fellowship Hall at the First Baptist Church in Cairo on Tuesday with hopes of starting something big.

They listened to the words of Cairo High School and University of Georgia football legend Bill Stanfill and talked about the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). Since 1954, FCA has been uniting coaches and athletes on all levels under Jesus Christ. FCA is currently the largest Christian sports organization in the world.

Stanfill, a stalward defensive lineman on the Miami Dolphins’ undefeated Super Bowl team in 1972, is actively involved in the Albany FCA chapter.

“I didn’t have a choice of whether or not I was going to church,” he said. “My mother made me go. When I went off to college, I drifted away from church until I was about 30. Now, I’m at church every Sunday.

“FCA is just a great organization that helps kids. Kids need to learn how to live by the Ten Commandments to make good choices.”
