He was in the top 12, and on May 6, he competed at the State level. After State competition he received a scholarship and was chosen to represent the Southern Baptist Convention of Texas at the National Invitational Tournament for Youth and High School Bible Drill and Youth Speakers.
Bible Drill is a program that helps children/youth hide God’s word in their heart by memorizing scriptures. It gives them knowledge of where all books are in the Bible, where particular scriptures are and where key passages are located that will help them through life. Each competition consists of the following categories: Bible Book Calls, Scripture Search Calls, Identifying Verses Calls, Doctrinal Calls, and Bible Answer Call. The participants have eight seconds to find the particular call and step forward.
