Just a few stitches
Dr. Weems Pennington was a great town doctor, school supporter, and team booster. One incident really puts an exclamation point on this. In the early 1960s, a Red Devils player came out of the game with a bad cut on one of his eyebrows. Doc headed to the bench, grabbed his bag, and had the player sit. Doc stitched up the cut and sent the player back in the game after missing only a play or two. That player was Weems Pennington II, who became a leading cardiologist in Augusta. His son Weems III is a leading cardiologist in Aiken SC.
