Twice in the last 2 years, I had the privilege of spending some time on air with my good friend Mark Sturgis, host of Straight Up With Sturg on ESPN Upstate. “Sturg” and I were introduced at the first College All-Star Bowl back in 2013 at North Greenville University and I was very excited to get the call to be on his show.
Usually, my focus is Lexington County Athletics here in the heart of the Midlands of South Carolina, but with Sturg, we discuss something even more near and dear to my heart – the brotherhood of Palmetto Boys’ State and the great athletes that attend from all over SC! It is a one week encampment every summer, now at Anderson University, where young men, all of them rising high school seniors, gather to learn, grow, and experience this truth – “Let One Week Begin Your Life!”
Take a listen to our most recent conversations here:
