HOUSTON - A recruiter walks into Klein Oak High School to meet with Dwight McGlothern.

The senior is a highly-touted, four-star recruit. McGlothern has already cut his school list down to his Top 5 - Arkansas, LSU, Oregon, Texas and Georgia - and has already announced he will commit on January 4. So, when a recruiter comes in to talk to McGlothern these days, the senior goes and grabs teammates.

Teammates that the recruiter needs to meet and talk to, guys that McGlothern believes people should be looking at.

"It says a lot about who he is as a person," Klein Oak coach Jason Glenn said. "Nobody knows that. The stigma about what Dwight is, what everybody tries to project him out to be is totally wrong ... He's an amazing young man and what that says is that he cares about others more than himself."

McGlothern added: "I believe they are as good as me. I feel like we are on the same page. We work hard together, grind together and work with the same person ... I kind of have [my recruitment] settled, so if they can get that I think they can help out that team."

The 2019 season is the first for McGlothern at Klein Oak.

After spending his first two years at New Caney, McGlothern left to join TC-Cedar Hill in the Dallas Fort Worth area for his junior season. This past summer, McGlothern returned to Houston and joined the Panthers.

When he arrived he had to buy into FAMILY - Forget About Me I Love You.

KINGWOOD - The true impact of a coach can't always measured by the number of win and losses, the number of district championships or even runs at a state title.

This story goes beyond any of that.

In reality, the impact a coach is seen whenever they become the one that is in need of the support that they have been providing to others their entire career.

Kingwood girls soccer coach Pres Holcomb, who is set to begin chemotherapy to battle Stage 4 colon cancer, which he was diagnosed with on December 20, is seeing his impact as the Kingwood and soccer community has rallied around him and his family with messages, wristbands, t-shirts, donations and more.

"It's overwhelming in a good way," Holcomb said. "It's kind of crazy when you see your own name across stuff like that. Once we went public with it, the support has been amazing. People you haven't talked to in years are reaching out to you."

Since they've gone public with it the "Hope for Holcomb" campaign has taken off.

The soccer team - which was told about Holcomb's battle in a group setting - created blue wristbands with the phrase on them. It started with the girls wearing them during matches and expanded to them being sold at different places in the community.

They started by ordering just 300.

Then an order of 500 more was needed and that still wasn't enough. The wristbands have sold more than 1,000.

"You don't even think you know that many people," Holcomb said.
