Two senior athletes from Italy High School have been selected to compete in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) summer all-star games in June. Clay Riddle will be representing the Gladiators on the gridiron during the 10th Annual FCA Victory Bowl Football Game and Brycelen “Cha Cha” Richards will be representing the Lady Gladiators during the 3rd Annual Softball Game.

Riddle, a two-time all-state defensive performer, played with a seek-and-destroy mentality in his final season once his golden helmet was buckled up for battle while Richards, a three-time all-state selection, is expected to gash the opposition with her mighty sword-like swings while defending the sacred sand of Johnny Jones Field during Italy’s home games.

Also participating in the football game will be Markavion Thompson, Milford who will be a Red Team teammate of Riddle. Lowisley Ojeda, Milford will be a member of the Blue Team. Marquisha Houston, Milford will be representing the Lady Bulldogs during the 5th Annual Super Centex Volley Ball Game to be played at University High School.
