The upstate is pretty much home. I wasn't born here, but the family moved to Greenville 40 years ago when Dad took a job in the textile business. Went to J. L. Mann High, then saw my daughter graduate from the same school. I started in the radio business after one semester of college, which I found out was too hard. (College, not this!) I was lucky to get started here at WESC 30 years ago, and haven't found anything else I really wanted to do more. And I like the things we have on WESC ... I do like country music, I do like racing, I just don't like getting up at 3 am.
Usually, sinking a buzzer beating basket to win a game is a dream come true. For a high school guard in Oklahoma, it’s a nightmare! At an Oklahoma state boys' basketball tournament, all Hugo High had to do to seal a one-point win with under 3 seconds to play was to inbound the ball and run out the clock. But after getting the pass, guard Trey Johnson got confused and laid the ball into the wrong basket as time ran out. That gave opposing Millwood High a 38-37 win. His coach says Johnson "feels terrible" after his mistake — and that his teammates have been calling and texting him to console him. Of course, that video has gone viral on YouTube. And here it is!
