Personal Story: I was raised in a home with good values, but in my college years I made some bad choices, using alcohol and drugs. The intense pressure of competition was the excuse that many of my teammates and I gave for our drug use. The drugs not only lowered my potential as an athlete, but also as a student. When I turned my life over to Christ, I found He gave me the strength to deal with the pressure and brought true happiness and peace in my life that drugs just could not give.
