     BOILING SPRING LAKES—The South Brunswick Cougars were running on all cylinders Friday night as they cruised by the Washington Pam Pack (Pamlico Packing Co.) 39-7 in the first round of the N.C. High School Athletic Association Class 3A state playoffs.

    “Respect all, fear none” is the Cougars’ motto in the playoffs, as the defense feared no one, holding the opposition to 7 points, its second best total of the year. (It held Topsail to 7 points Sept. 3.) The offensive line was crushing its opponents.

    During my year and a half in the First Tee of Brunswick County, I have met some incredible players and mentors.

    In the summer of 2009, at a First Tee Summer Tour event at Panther’s Run, I had the pleasure to meet Coach Mike Gildea, who is a birdie-level coach. From that point on, we developed a close bond. Over the past week I had the opportunity to interview Coach Mike about golf, his early life and what the First Tee of Brunswick County has meant to him.
