SAVOY — Champaign Central junior Sam Watts heard his team received new hats to wear in Monday's Big 12 boys' golf meet, but he didn't know why.

Watts has been out of the loop for the past week after his father, Ben, died of cancer last Tuesday. The last six days flew by as he spoke with visitors and heard stories about his dad, most of which described the calm, gentle man he knew.
