Bluffton's Robert Brown wins South Carolina Starfish Award

Columbia, S.C. – The South Carolina winner of the 2012 No-Cut Starfish Award is Coach Robert Brown of Bluffton High School, chosen for his excellence in coaching and his No-Cut philosophy. 
Coach Robert Brown and other No-Cut Coach Starfish Award nominees have impacted the lives of many students positively, making tennis a rewarding sport for all. By utilizing the philosophy of No-Cut, more students are able to get out and play tennis on their high-school team.
When asked why he uses and encourages the No-Cut philosophy, Brown said, "What I am learning often is about the success stories of the non-super stars that have made it due to not being cut." Brown said he had one player in particular who surprised him, "one of my #2 doubles players informed me that he will play on scholarship at Limestone." This No-Cut philosophy gives students a chance and allows them to show their true potential.
As the South Carolina winner and nominee, Brown has received a case of Penn Championship tennis balls for his team. He will also be eligible for the national award along with other coaches from each state.  The winning coach will be awarded registration, travel, and lodging to the UTSA Community Development Workshop to receive the award.
Coaches who participate in the No-Cut program take all students who try out for their high school team regardless of their skill level. No-Cut Coaches serve as positive role models, and they make a difference by spending the extra time and effort to ensure that thousands of young players experience the fun of representing their high school tennis teams.
