Seven Breckenridge High School seniors were selected for the Big Country Fellowship of Christian Athletes all-star games this summer.

The athletes who were chosen for the honor are Riley Durham and Terrance Roberson for football, Marcos Gonzales for baseball, Taylor Stanley for basketball, Makenna Moser for softball and Kennedi Toombs and Samantha Stephens for cheerleading.

BHS Coach Brian Valenzuela said every year Big Country Fellowship of Christian Athletes selects athletes who are succeeding not only on the athletic field, but who also are a great example in the classroom and outside the classroom by doing good things for their community.

He said they are also chosen for the bigger picture of the ministry of Jesus Christ and being able to pass that forward through their actions and through the things that they exemplify.

Valenzuela said the athletes will be honored with an induction banquet and they will compete in all-star games in their respective sports. The teams are split into North and South teams which compete in the games. He said the cheerleaders will be included in activities during the games..

The FCA All-Star Induction Banquet will be at 4 p.m. Sunday, May 6, at the Abilene Civic Center Exhibit Hall.

The FCA All-Star Softball and Baseball games will be on Friday, June 8, in San Angelo.

The FCA All-Star Basketball game will be Saturday, June 9, at Brownwood Coliseum.

The FCA All-Star Volleyball and Football games will be on Saturday, June 9, in Abilene.  The volleyball game will be at the Wylie High School Gym at noon, and the football game will be in Shotwell Stadium with kick-off scheduled for 7 p.m.
