WES’s WISDOM: Young athletes would do well to follow Panthers legend’s lead

From my time watching and covering all levels of sports, I've seen some good players excel on the field, but I've also seen some better players who lead. If you're looking to take that next step in your high school athletic career and help your team get to the mountaintop, here are some valuable lessons on leadership that I’ve seen from Panthers legend Luke Kuechly and some of our own stars here in the Lowco. 

RIETVELD: Stewart and Reagan Cink’s heartwarming triumph at Harbour Town hit home

The purest, most fruitful father-son relationships are unbeatable, and Stewart and Reagan Cink proved that in grand fashion while sending many of us down a smiling, memory lane of our own Sunday at the RBC Heritage. 

WES’s WISDOM: Father and son perfectly in ‘Cink’ during remarkable RBC Heritage run

After an impressive victory at the Safeway Open, followed by another top-five finish in Bermuda, Stewart Cink knew his son Reagan needed to stay on his bag. Now, just a handful of months later, the father and son find themselves 18 holes away from a weekend to remember forever at the RBC Heritage. 

RIETVELD: Up close and personal, this is the RBC Heritage like we’ve never seen

The RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing is back in its traditional April slot on the schedule, and a very fortunate portion of Plaid Nation is back at Harbour Town Golf Links after a spectator-free 2020 tournament in June.

WES’s WISDOM: Two of Team Lowco’s own have earned next step in career journey

Here at LowcoSports, our mission is to honor and celebrate the amazing achievements of our hard-working student-athletes, coaches, and community. But over the years, we’ve adopted another. The journalism industry is a difficult one to crack, a field that requires a strong amount of experience to put your foot in the door. If we can give our local high school and college students a chance to hone their skills through practice in writing, photography, and video production, they can obtain the necessary experience to learn the ropes and start on the path to a rewarding career. And we’re proud to have two amazing success stories right here on Team Lowco. 

RIETVELD: HHI golfer Griz showing talent beyond his years in pursuit of dreams

Buffing clubs, driving a range picker, and blowing my minimum wage income on imported Beastie Boys albums … that is what I was doing at age 17. Jonathan Griz, at age 17? He simply dropped a cool 5-under par 65 to qualify for a world-class professional golf tournament. 

WES’s WISDOM: Hall of Famer Faber was exemplary coach, mentor, and friend for Jags

The job descriptions of a high school coach go far beyond collecting wins on the gridiron, field, or court. Sure, it's always important to build a winning team, but at the end of the day, it doesn't compare to the most important task: shaping and molding young men and women into extraordinary individuals for life.
