WACO, Texas (KWTX) - It was a celebration of talent and character Sunday evening at McLane Stadium.

The Heart of Texas’ Fellowship of Christian Athletes held it’s annual Victory Bowl Banquet, honoring the players, coaches, and cheerleaders that have been selected for this year’s Victory Bowl.

FCA Area Director, Ben Johnson, says, “It is important to celebrate them because they have been given God given abilities and talents, and I believe we want to use those things for God’s glory.”

The event had former Baylor Women’s basketball great Sophia Young-Malcolm as the keynote speaker.

Young-Malcolm spoke about Christ’s role in her climb from poverty to the WNBA.

She also stressed the importance of these types of events, saying, “With everything that is happening in our world right now I think anything promoting Jesus is important to have. And I think sometimes, for young people, being in a group is much better for them.”

The banquet serves as a preview for the Victory Bowl All-Star games. The information for the games is as follows:
