Steve & Amy Hagen - former NFL Coach
Steve recently joined Lake Oconee FCA after a 30+ year coaching career. He and his wife Amy and their four children have been in the NFL for the last eleven years coaching with the Cleveland Browns and the New York Jets. Prior to those coaching opportunities Coach Hagen coached at Notre Dame, North Carolina, Cal, Illinois, Fresno and Nevada.
"After thirty three years of coaching full-time we heard the call to join FCA and give back to the Coaches, Athletes and communities that have given so much to us. We have coached football from California to New York City and now it's time to share the love of Christ that has carried us along the way. Dr. Billy Graham once said this a while back and it will always hold true, "A coach will influence more people in a year than the average person will in a lifetime." We believe that to be true and that is why we are teaming up with Fellowship of Christian Athletes to influence Coaches, Athletes and communities for Christ."
