Keepers of the Flame: Freshman archer Justin York
November 10, 2016 | Lynchburg, Va.
On this week's segment of "Keepers of the Flame," Justin York, a freshman on Liberty University's archery team shares his favorite Scripture verse, Psalms 23:4: "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me."
"I use that throughout the archery trail just because we go into this and we don't know exactly what all we're going to be facing," York said. "There's a lot of nerves, a lot of stress, because you can be having a bad day and still come out the next day and still try to compete to your best abilities. So that really helps me and kind of encourages me through that because I know that God's going to be with me no matter what."
York, from Midlothian, Va., won the Commonwealth Games' 3D archery event hosted by Liberty in July and finished 15th for the Flames in the men's compound division of the Oct. 14-15 United States Collegiate Archery Association (USCA) 3D National Championships in Illinois.
