My Conversation with Decorated War Hero turned football player: Daniel Rodriguez

Aaron Marks Host, The Drive 6-9 a.m. M-F Sports Radio 100.3 The Team In my line of work as a talk show host, I get asked a lot of questions about my work. How did I get into this job? What did I study in school? How early do I wake up every day? My favorite question though is what do I like most about my job? What’s my favorite part and anyone who knows me or listens to my show knows that it’s... 

Proper footwear key to avoiding foot injuries in runners

The key to avoiding foot injuries may be sitting right under your feet – your shoes. Choosing the proper footwear can go a long way toward preventing foot injuries in runners. Here’s a quick way to find out the right shoes for you: Know Your Foot Type The key to making sure you find the correct shoe for you and your running endeavors is first, knowing your foot type. The most important... 

Rooting for MB’s Golson, not ND’s Irish, is tricky business

And I thought it was tough being a Chicago Cubs fan. At least with the Cubbies, you know what you’re going to get. But try being an Everett Golson fan, as many who watched him play at Myrtle Beach High have become. Not a Notre Dame fan, which is blasphemy in SEC country. But as someone who genuinely wants to see someone from their hometown go on to succeed. And has he ever, albeit it in the most... 

Bobby Petrino’s Clemson/Death Valley comments are overblown

I’m no Bobby Petrino fan. In fact I really can’t stand the guy (primarily as a person). If you need to ask why, well you’ve probably lived under a rock the last five years or don’t follow college football. The guy’s personal transgressions aside, he can coach football and is one of the very best offensive-minded coaches in the country. But Bobby Petrino’s comments... 

Respect Amateurism/Title IX, but Allow Student-Athletes to Profit from their Likeness

Aaron Marks Host, The Drive 6-9 a.m. M-F Sports Radio 100.3 The Team It’s no secret at this point. College athletics is big business and the question continues to bring water coolers to boiling points around the country: Should NCAA Athletes be paid? My answer: No, but Yes. It’s really simple, actually. I respect amateurism and I think it can be preserved in the college game. We can’t just outright... 

Early losses for USC, Clemson could be a big win for Coastal

For avid South Carolina and Clemson fans, the college football season didn’t even last past Week 1 before both of their hopes for a national title all but went up in flames. South Carolina’s 52-28 demolition at the hands of Texas A&M, followed by Clemson’s 45-21 manhandling by Georgia, sank both Palmetto State powers in the polls and basically set a mandate that they run the table... 

Plenty of treatment options for runners with foot pain

One of the most common causes of foot pain that affects roughly 2 million Americans a year and 10 percent of the population during their lifetime is known as plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammatory condition of the thick band of tissue (fascia) on the bottom of the foot, which runs across the bottom of the foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. Under normal circumstances,... 

Dry needling offers relief from golf, tennis elbow

As orthopedic physical therapists we treat musculoskeletal disorders of all sorts.  Living in a premier golf resort area like Myrtle Beach can lead to a higher percentage of a couple disorders in particular. Two of the more common disorders we treat are “golfers elbow” (medial epicondylalgia/tendinosis) and “tennis elbow” (lateral epicondylalgia/tendinosis ).  Epicondylalgia is synonymous... 

Football flashback comes just in time for kickoff

I got hit in the face by Facebook the other day in the form of an old football picture posted by a friend. Staring me in the face was a long lost and forgotten photo of what I affectionately call “the greatest 0-10 youth football team ever to take the gridiron.” The 1978 Donelson-Hermitage Warriors, God bless our souls, were thoroughly bashed, thrashed and trashed in virtually every game... 

ACC media days; I just want to ask, how do you like your crab legs Jameis?

Sunday afternoon, members of the media will gather in Greensboro, NC, for the annual ACC Football media days. I’m sure it has some official title, like ACC Kickoff, or Operation Football, or whatever. After 20-plus years of attending the event, to me it’s simply ACC media days. The two-day event begins with the media members exchanging hellos, checking in, and receiving a normally very cool gift....
