'A great first impression'

As Citadel basketball players met their new coach for the first time Tuesday, perhaps no Bulldog had more at stake than Harrison DuPont.  DuPont, a 6-5 forward and member of the Southern Conference all-freshman team last season, has made no secret of the fact that he is considering transferring to a new school. After meeting new coach Chuck Driesell, DuPont said he was impressed, but still undecided about his future.

Athlete of the Week: Simmons leads Lady Rebels to second straight region title

Effingham County's head golf coach Curtis Stevens said he could always expect Stephanie Simmons to shoot a score in the high 70s to low 80s this season.  Not only is she headed to her third state tournament, but she also has earned a scholarship to continue playing golf in college next year at The Citadel.  "It's not going to be fun," she said of the South Carolina Military College. "It's going to be hard work, but it'll be worth it."  Aside from playing golf, Simmons will be in the Air Force ROTC program and will study political science.

"We used to ask Chuck, 'how do you do that?' And Chuck said, 'I've figured it out. I keep a candy bar in my pocket. He only gets grumpy when he's hungry.'"

According to a new Pew Research Center study, nine out of 10 18- to 29-year-olds believe they'll have enough money to lead the kind of life they want. Hold your laughter.  Take it one step further, think executive office. One could always work for Uncle Sam. Travis DeFreest does. He went straight into the National Guard after graduating from the Citadel in 2004 and served in Afghanistan.

1_Driesell to be named new Bulldogs coach

The Citadel's next basketball coach, Chuck Driesell, was almost a Citadel basketball player.  Back in 1981, when Driesell was coming out of high school, former Bulldogs coach Les Robinson tried to recruit him to The Citadel.  "But his dad called me up," Robinson recalled, "and said he had not been able to spend a lot of time with Chuck while he was growing up. And that if Chuck played for him, they could spend the next four years together."
