Dodge City High School FCA and the Tournament of Champions are excited to announce Tress Way as the guest speaker at the 41st Annual FCA Breakfast for the 79th Annual TOC on Saturday, Jan. 22, 2022 at Boot Hill Casino & Resort Conference Center at 8:30 a.m. sponsored by Sunflower Bank.

Way is known by many as the NFC Pro Bowl Punter for the Washington Football Team.

He is also one of the most popular players in Washington and has been the focus of NFL Films on two separate occasions.

A graduate of Tulsa (OK) Union High School, Way kicked collegiately at the University of Oklahoma for Hall of Fame Coach Bob Stoops.

He earned his bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies in 2012 from OU.

However, Way would rather talk about his faith and family than anything else.

In his own words, “I have a deep, driving desire each day where I can’t wait to wake up in the morning and read my Bible. I need God! "The first prayer I pray before I start my quiet time is, 'God, teach me to be the man, the husband, the father You want me to be,' in that order. If I can be the man God wants me to be, I can then be husband God wants me to be, and the father I need to be to my children. Yes, I’ve been walking with God now for 13 years but at 31 years old, I know I need God now more than I have ever have. And not only do I need Him more, I want Him more. I want my life to look the way He wants it to look. That is my greatest desire, what I pray for, and ultimately, what I can’t wait to see unfold.”

In 2013, Way married Brianna Turang, a former softball and soccer player at the University of Oklahoma.

They have three-year-old twins, Beau and Harper, and one year old Hadley.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door the morning of the event.
