ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two former NFL players passed on inspiration and knowledge to high school student-athletes Tuesday morning.

Derrick Moore and Bobby Jackson were the speakers for the 2nd annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes football team camp.

All three Dougherty County schools, plus Sherwood Christian and Brookwood were represented by coaching staff and team.

The squads played in a 7 on 7 tournament and held a lineman challenge out at Hugh Mills Stadium.

While football was the draw, the focus was much greater.

"We provide the guys some bibles and we have speakers that come in that share their testimonies about how they accepted Christ as their personal Lord and savior," said FCA area director Bill Cox.

Moore played football for Monroe back in the 80s. He spoke to the athletes about the importance of their decisions.

"I think back to my time in high school with Monroe when I was here. I think as an older person now realizing a lot of the things it takes to get from one stage to the next, it really requires a lot of self-discipline."

Moore is currently the Chaplin  for Georgia Tech.

He was drafted by the Atlanta Falcons back in 1992.
