On Saturday, March 4th Cuyahoga Heights' Fellowship of Christian Athletes hosted this years Huddle Showdown, bringing together six local schools to compete in different mini-games including games like Hot Potato Volleyball, Dodgeball, Ultimate Basketball, Tug-O-War, and Chariot Races. Returning as last years Champions, Cuyahoga Heights emerged from the event with second place.
More important than this, however, was the message that the students were able to take away from the event. Former Denver Nugget, Marcus Liberty, came to speak with the student athletes about the importance of perserverance and practice. He reminded them that practice for their sports was more important than the "big game" because it set up the foundation for skills. He also drew the connection between practicing for a sport and practicing faith throughout life. He reminded the althletes that at times, negative things are going to happen and life will not always go as planned, but the most important thing is that the students never give up on their goals and more importantly, their faith.
