Bryan Strickland Senior Writer Charlotte, NC – Between his continually running TV ads for Gatorade and Under Armour and now his appearance on the cover of the September issue of GQ, it seems like Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is everywhere. In reality, Newton’s world often is limited to a square mile of uptown Charlotte, with most of his time spent at his condo and his home away from home – the locker room, meeting rooms and practice fields at Bank of America Stadium. Newton has quickly become the biggest celebrity the Panthers organization has ever known, but his teammates say his head hasn’t grown in proportion to his fame. “He’s just one of the guys,” left tackle Jordan Gross said.

Spotlight on Olivia Gaitros Topsail Beach, NC – People tell us all the time that they’ve always loved sea turtles. In the case of summer intern Olivia Gaitros, she put her feet in the sand to prove it when she began working the beach on Figure Eight Island at the tender age of nine. Over the years she was mentored by their sea turtle whisperer, Charlie Baker, and as she matured and gained knowledge she assumed more responsibilities in their program. Eventually she was identifying, verifying and analyzing the nests, in addition to being on-site for the hatches. When we were hit with our massive cold-stun event in the late fall and early winter of 2010, word spread throughout the sea […]

By Matt Rochinski EMERGING LEADER Entering his third NBA season in 2011-12, Gerald Henderson knew he’d be asked to step up and take on the role of one of the Bobcats leaders and welcomed the challenge. After averaging 9.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 24.4 minutes in 2010-11, Hendo led the Bobcats in scoring (15.1 points) and was third in rebounding (4.1) and assists (2.3) in 55 starts. Look for those numbers to go up across the board and his leadership role to continue to evolve in 2012-13. “I just try to lead by example,” said Henderson. “If I can go out there and set a tone for our team, then the guys will follow. We have […]
