Warriors News · Winning the Wendy’s High School Heisman: How Will It Change Your Life? – Presented by Wendy’s


National award paves the way to the Olympics for one accomplished high school athlete.

Back in 2002, Olympian rower Meghan O’Leary didn’t even know rowing was a sport. A senior at Episcopal High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she was an accomplished volleyball, basketball, and softball star as well as a top scholar. Then one afternoon, her high school softball coach and Athletic Director handed her the Wendy’s High School Heisman application—and that piece of paper would ultimately change the course of her life.

Oleary10Meghan applied for the award, and months later, she found herself as a national award finalist in New York City for Heisman Weekend. While she believed the winner would surely be one of the other five female finalists, the experience of the weekend itself, surrounded by other high-achieving students and past winners, and rubbing elbows with college football’s finest, set Meghan’s life on a higher path, opening her eyes to her own potential to accomplish great things. She formed life-long friendships with many of the impressive people she met. And she was both awed and inspired by the stories of Wendy’s Heisman alumni who had gone on to achieve incredible successes. She imagined herself as one day following in their footsteps.

Then, in one incredible instant, she became the next member of the Heisman family. It was her name that was read aloud on the stage that December Friday evening, confirming Meghan as the 2002 Wendy’s High School Heisman Female National Winner.

A ticket to college and an introduction to a new passion.

Meghan believes that the Wendy’s High School Heisman award played a critical part in her selection as a Jefferson Scholar and acceptance into the University of Virginia, where she would play both of her high school sports, softball and volleyball. As fate would have it, her freshman roommate was also a college athlete, but in a sport with which Meghan, at the time, was completely unfamiliar: rowing.

While at UVA, Meghan met much of the women’s rowing team, including the coach, who was the first to recognize Meghan’s potential to become a greater rower. The coach invited Meghan to come out for the team, telling her that she could one day be an Olympian. While flattered by his comments, Meghan shrugged it off at the time. She was otherwise committed to her current sports teams. But that conversation planted a seed that would flourish just a few years later.

From Google search to Rio in four short years. 

After graduating and landing a dream job at ESPN with a highly promising career path, Meghan found herself living and working in Hartford, Connecticut, where rowing was a popular pastime. Recalling the UVA rowing coach’s words, Meghan did a quick Google search, which led her to a local community rowing club that offered learn-to-row lessons. “I didn’t know it at that time, but in those few clicks of the keyboard, I was beginning an incredible journey toward realizing a life I’d never dreamt of before,” Meghan wrote in her blog.

OLeary5It didn’t take Meghan long before she knew she was born to row. Ultimately, she took a huge leap of faith, quitting a job she loved and risking everything to chase the Olympic dream.  Less than four years after picking up an oar for the first time, Meghan found herself stepping off a plane in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as a member of the U.S. Olympic Rowing Team, on her way to compete in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.

“It [committing to train for the Olympics full time] was one of the scariest decisions I had faced, but would soon prove to be one of the greatest decisions I ever made,” Meghan wrote.

Placing sixth in the entire world. 

Meghan’s inner strength, relentless drive, and willingness to take on new challenges—the traits that made her the 2002 Wendy’s High School Heisman female winner—are the same characteristics that took her to Rio to compete on the US women’s double sculls rowing team. Meghan and her rowing partner, Ellen Tomek, faced grueling race conditions and battled back from a repechage in order to place sixth.

OLeary2Meghan describes her Olympic experience as other-worldly, one that changed her life and will live with her forever. “It was humbling to represent my country, my family and friends, and all the people who believe in me, and to be at the center of the world’s focus as they shared the excitement, triumph, and heartbreak of the Olympic Games,” Meghan blogged.

As with her incredible Heisman Weekend experience back in New York in 2002, Meghan knows that her Olympic achievements will lead to many more amazing experiences in the years ahead.

And for Meghan, it all started with that one application her senior year in high school.

Put your future on a winning course today.

Warriors News · What can 26% more do for your game? – Presented by 37.5® Technology


You know the stories – Tom Brady in Super Bowl LI, LeBron and Kyrie Irving in the 2016 NBA Finals, Landon Donovan vs. Algeria at the 2010 World Cup, 2015’s 2nd ‘Serena Slam,’ all unbelievable performances by athletes in un-winnable environments.

Work hard in the first three quarters and often you’ll come away the victor, but a few times a season, the only way to get the job done is to grind it out at the end. These opponents, the ones you circled on your calendar the day the schedule came out, won’t give up, and if you want to win, you’re going to need every extra percent of energy in your reserves.

What’s one way to find 26% more ability in your game so you can rise to the challenge in front of you? Managing your core temperature.

In a test performed at the University of Colorado Boulder that measured core body temperature in elite athletes, a shirt made with 37.5® technology allowed athletes to go 26% longer at their lactate threshold than in a wicking shirt. How? By keeping the athlete’s core cool, pulling the moisture away from the body in the vapor stage, which delays the onset of liquid sweat, and its exhausting effects on your game.

37.5 technology fabrics can provide high school athletes with the same exceptional performance available to elite athletes so they can train and perform at higher levels, and do so more comfortably. Increased breathability, faster dry times, and delayed onset of sweating due to moisture vapor management all work to reduce thermal heat stress and increase comfort so you don’t bonk. Active cooling and the extra 26% can be the difference between a W and an L on the schedule.

What could 26% more do for your game?  Find out by testing out 37.5 gear from these brands: Mission apparel for training and cross-country running, Inaria for soccer, Bauer for hockey, and Babolat for tennis.

Got a best last 26% comeback of your own? Send it to us at alex@cocona.com.
