Former South, UGA star Greene joins FCA Gwinnett board

* South Gwinnett grad David Greene, a record-breaking quarterback at Georgia, has joined the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Gwinnett's board of directors, FCA Gwinnett director Bill Dando announced Friday.

Greene, who led Georgia to the 2002 SEC title, held the NCAA record for most wins by a starting quarterback until it was broken this season by Texas' Colt McCoy.

"David is admired by so many and has such a great story," Dando said. "Gwinnett's coaches and athletes recognize him for his amazing football achievements, and now they can benefit from his spiritual influence and leadership."

Greene has settled back in Gwinnett since retiring from the NFL. He plans to work with local athletes in all sports, not just football, with FCA.

"The FCA values mirror my passion and that's why I'm excited to have a chance to make a difference in the county where I grew up," Greene said.
