Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

BUT they will STILL let cars drive through a packed crowd next to the stadium. Nothing moreRead More "secure" than thousands of people packed together with a state vehicle squeezing through, bumping the siren.
The Green Wave take on Pickens at home Friday night.

Coach Howell was a huge loss for Sumter and a real pickup for Easley. He is an awesome coach and anRead More even better man and will do big things in the Upstate. I am fired up for his brand of football.
The Green Wave hosts Pickens in the first game of the season August 23.

We fans are with ya, Coach. Your speech was both Lincolnonian (now, he belongs to the ages) andRead More inspirational. I’m 65 and still love the weight room! With the correct approach (fun, competition, positive reinforcement, best, most improved, posting lifts by position), weight training can be enjoyable hard work. For me, and I graduated high school in 1966, the best part of HS was athletics! Let the other teams smell your rubber! An optimistic fan, Ed Clark
