The Owen Gray Heart of a Champion:
This award is presented yearly to a player or coach who exemplifies the love of Christ in their life. A Heart of a Champion deeply cares for their community and others above themselves.
The award’s namesake and last years recipient, Owen Gray, is a student who learned he had Marfan Syndrome and could not play basketball or participate in sports anymore. He took this hardship and soared on wings like eagles. He raised money for the Marfan Foundation, raised national awareness for the Marfan Foundation, is constantly visiting and loving kids who are ill, never focuses on how things are hard for him, but cares for others.
We are pleased to announced that at the 2018 National Championships Tyler Johnson of the CHSM Crimson Knights joined both Brent Bennett of the Little Rock Flames & HCYA Warrior Alumni Owen Gray as Heart of a Champion recipients.
