The Greater Dallas Fellowship of Christian Athletes awarded SAGU Athletic Trainer Jaroy Carpenter the 2011 Male Huddle Coach of the Year.

The award was presented during the annual FCA Coaches Appreciation and Leadership Dinner held at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, featuring special guest Jon Kitna, a former quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

“We have a dedicated group of student-athletes at SAGU who see the value of how FCA can benefit schools, the community and the greater Dallas area,” Carpenter added.

He joined the FCA as a Huddle Leader from 1983-1987 while at Greenville High School before doing the same at J.J. Pierce High School from 1987-1991.

While serving as a youth pastor at Calvary Temple (Irving, Tx) for over ten years, he continued to be involved on the campuses of the Irving Independent School District as well as encouraging his students to be involved with FCA. He also served on the Irving FCA Adult Chapter.

Carpenter serves as SAGU’s Director of Sports Medicine and continues to maintain his own ministry, Solid Rock Resources. He is also the campus FCA Huddle Leader and coordinates SAGU’s Athlete Outreach Ministry. Carpenter lives in Midlothian with his wife Kim. Their family of five includes children Carli (15), Cade (12), and Corbin (10).
