Win a national championship—get a street named after you.

If you ever drive, walk, or bus past Colonial Life Arena in Downtown Columbia anytime soon, there is a chance you will drive, walk, or bus on Dawn Staley Way.

There was a parade in South Carolina’s capital city to honor the national champion South Carolina Gamecocks—and at the parade, Columbia mayor Steve Benjamin announced that a portion of the street near the Gamecocks home court will be named after the title-winning coach.

Staley herself also tweeted her thanks.
