Former Athlete/Coach/Broadcaster Wins Important Election

No, Lynn Swann did not win the Pennsylvania gubernatorial election.
No, Charles Barkley has not yet even run for Alabama governor.
No, Jack Kemp did not win the Vice Presidency in 1996.
And no, Bill Bradley did not try to reclaim his New Jersey Senate seat.

Sam Wyche, former Furman quarterback, Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach and NFL broadcaster won the first election of his political life yesterday in the Republican primary for Pickens County Council District 3, in the upstate of South Carolina.

Wyche, seen here with campaign supporters at a May rally, hopes to win a seat on the County Council in the November election. After casting his vote, presumably for himself, Wyche spent the afternoon in 100 degree temperatures as an assistant coach with the Pickens High School Blue Flame football team.
