FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Myrtle Beach, S.C., is a place people visit. At any given time, the town will host roughly 78,000 tourists; the other 27,000 or so are its full-time residents.

So when one of its own finds success in a faraway place -- like, quarterbacking a once-proud Indiana football program's return to college football's biggest stage -- people take notice.

Everett Golson will lead No. 1 Notre Dame against No. 2 Alabama in the Discover BCS National Championship. The game will be played Monday, six days after the dawn of a new year but momentous enough to warrant another holiday, nonetheless.

Jan. 7 is Golson's day in his hometown of Myrtle Beach.

Officially.

On the day after Christmas, while attending the Beach Ball Classic, an annual prep basketball tournament, the signal-caller of the nation's No. 1 team was handed a plaque by Mayor John Rhodes that proclaimed Monday as Everett Golson Day.
