Mike Blanc - Football Chaplain, University of Miami

Mike hails from Broward County, FL where he was born and raised. As a student athlete at Deerfield Beach High School, he worked hard and graduated in 2006. His hard work on and off the field paid off and Mike chose to attend Auburn University on a full football scholarship. While there, his passion for Christ led him to join FCA where God blessed and used him in the role of president of the ministry. As a student athlete, he helped to lead his teammates in an undefeated season, the 2010 SEC championship, and the 2011 BCS National Championship. To cap it all off, Mike graduated from Auburn with a Bachelor’s degree in Public Administration. He was then drafted into the NFL and played for the San Diego Chargers and the Pittsburg Steelers. From the beginning, Mike’s number one desire was to serve Christ as he let God lead his steps back to Florida.
