It’s not really surprising that Spartanburg Christian Academy had a few butterflies competing in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes 7 on 7 Camp.
 
After all, it was the Warriors first time facing varsity competition of any kind.
 
SCA is a second-year football program but only played a middle school and junior varsity schedule last year. It played eight games against the likes of Woodruff and Orangeburg-Wilkinson in the passing tournament on Tuesday at USC Upstate. The FCA camp will finish up with a morning session beginning at 9 a.m. today.

When Nick Willis played in the Western North Carolina Tournament series through U.S. Kids’ Golf last fall, his goal was playing in the World Championship at Pinehurst this August.

Willis, a 12-year-old SCA student, not only finished well enough to qualify for Pinehurst, but in the process also qualified for the European Championship held in Scotland this summer. His family hadn’t thought much about putting him in the tournament until his grandfather, Don Willis, suggested it eight months ago.
